I was joined by Jonathan Pledge, the Lead Curator in Contemporary Archives and Manuscripts in Politics and Public Life, who I worked closely with on The British Library’s acquisition of the Kim Stallwood Archive. Paula Sparks, Chair of the UK Centre for Animal Law and Visiting Professor in Animal Welfare Law at Winchester University, spoke about the history and development of animal law. The panel was chaired by Anat Pick, Reader in Film at Queen Mary University of London and author of Creaturely Poetics: Animality and Vulnerability in Literature and Film (Columbia University Press, 2011).

The British Library invited me to write four guest posts for its Social Science blog. Three are published:

  • Animals and the Law: readings on animal rights law
  • Animals and Feminism: readings on the intersection of oppression
  • Animals and the Climate Emergency: readings on the global impact of industrial animal agriculture

The fourth guest post, Animals and Social Justice, will be published soon.
