Reijsoo, Tim

Graduate Student

University of Amsterdam
Research interests / activities:

I am specializing within the field of Critical Animal Studies. I am currently writing my research master thesis in philosophy under the supervision of Dr Eva Meijer, a renowned scholar on animal languages. I hope to be able to continue to a PhD, and continue my work on formulating multi-species theories of oppression. My work mainly concerns itself with the intersection of systems of oppression, and the role of ideology in shaping human-animal relationships. Besides philosophy I also have a graduate degree in International Development Studies from the University of Amsterdam. Besides my academic endeavours I am also active within animal rights organizations e.g. Animal Rebellion, Anonymous for the Voiceless, as well as active in Politics to promote justice for animals in society.
