Jennifer Eichman, ‘Women and Animals: Culinary Dilemmas and Karmic Entanglement’

Late sixteenth-century China witnessed a surge in the popularity of the Buddhist practice of buying animals and then setting them free. Releasing life, as it was called, could be practiced informally or as part of highly elaborate releasing-life ceremonies organized by groups of educated men who belonged to releasing-life societies that largely excluded women. The popularity of releasing-life practices spread through the robust publication of essays exhorting readers to refrain from killing animals and eating meat. Most essays were directed…

Two Doors dealt with state violence through the police, whereas The Remnants tries to explore the reasons from within the community. The five interviewees’…
