Abandon Every Hope: A Discussion with Hayley Singer

Abandon Every Hope

In Spring 2023, Australian Hayley Singer, a 2020 CAF grantee, published Abandon Every Hope: Essays for the Dead (Upswell Publishing), a “thanatography” for the times we’re living in. She joined Dutch political activist and literary scholar Jesseka Batteau and Martin Rowe, executive director of the Culture & Animals Foundation, to talk about veganism, the COVID crisis, education, creativity, and confronting the daily suffering of animals.
