Temple Grandin: Thinking in Pictures

Friday, November 6, 2020, 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Location: Virtual
Calendar: Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series

NOTE: The scheduled presentation by Pedro Reyes and MagalĂ­ Arriola has been postponed due to technical difficulties. In its place, we offer a favorite presentation from the series archives by renowned author, researcher, and activist Temple Grandin.

Temple Grandin is a Doctor of Animal Science and professor at Colorado State University, bestselling author, and consultant to the livestock industry in animal behavior. Facilities she has designed are located in the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries. In North America, almost half of the cattle are handled in a center track restrainer system that she designed for meat plants. Curved chute and race systems she has designed for cattle are used worldwide and her writings on the flight zone and other principles of grazing animal behavior have helped many people to reduce stress on their animals during handling.

As a person with high-functioning autism, Grandin is also widely noted for her work in autism advocacy and is the inventor of the hug machine designed to calm hypersensitive persons.

Presented with support from the UM Autism & Communication Disorders Center.
