Dr Zoei Sutton is a sociologist interested in critical, nonhuman animal-centric research. Her dissertation examined the lived experience of human-companion animal entanglements, utilising species inclusive methods to centre nonhuman animals’ experiences and encourage critical reflection on them. Other recent projects have examined the construction of “pest” species in print media and the treatment of nonhuman animals in sociological literature. Underlying this research is a commitment to research that is for nonhuman animals, rather than merely about them.
