Perez Castello, Pablo
I am a PhD candidate whose research focuses on understanding the importance of human language in producing human dominion over animals, and in shaping the ethics and politics of animal law and ethology. My research also investigates the role animal language can play regarding the participation of animals in political decision-making processes and the construction of zoodemocratic systems.
I also conducted research at the University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Centre for Animal Rights Law, where I studied how the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia should change in light of the argument advanced by Sue Donaldson and Will Kymlicka that wild animals should have a right to self-determination.
My publication record includes philosophy peer-reviewed articles in philosophical journals, including Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, and Philosophy Today.
My interests include ecofeminism, postcolonialism, critical race theory, critical disability studies, animal law, conservation, continental philosophy and critical animal studies.
