My research deals with socio-political and legal context defining the current status of nonhuman animals in society. I am particularly interested in social movements, civil uprisings and their role in invoking societal change. My Ph.D. project focusses on the emergence of animal ethics, vegetarianism and animal rights in a contemporary historical perspective.
