“Every Twelve Seconds” by Timothy Panchirat

by ,

I am reading the book Every Twelve Seconds: Industrialized Slaughter and the Politics of Sight by Timothy Pachirat. It is an account of the author’s experience in a cattle slaughterhouse, where he worked undercover for five months and aided in the deconstruction of “cow” to “cow parts.” I am not yet done with the book but there are many parts that stand out to me. Over the next few days, I am going to post them as literary nuggets on this page.
