While seeking local individuals who have invested time into the study of the poultry industry, I was pleased to discover the book titled, Slaughterhouse Blues: The Meat and Poultry Industry in North America.   (Wadsworth, 2012).  The second updated and expanded second edition, which came out in February, includes a chapter on animal rights and welfare. Donald D. Stull, Ph.D., M.P.H., professor of anthropology at the University of Kansas, was kind enough to share in this interview, perspectives gained through his many years of research. Prof. Stull is an applied cultural anthropologist who has conducted basic and applied research throughout the United States. For the past 25 years his work has focused on the meat and poultry industry in North America, rural industrialization and rapid growth communities, and industrial agriculture’s impact on farmers and rural communities. Don was editor-in-chief of Human Organization, the leading international journal of applied social science, from 1999 through 2004, and president of the Society for Applied Anthropology from 2005 to 2007.
