In this episode, we are joined by Sue Donaldson. Sue is a research associate in the Department of Philosophy at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada. She is also the co-founder of the Animals in Philosophy, Politics, Law, and Ethics research group – APPLE – at Queen’s. Many listeners will know her as the co-author of Zoopolis, a 2011 book about animals in politics that is now available in English, Chinese, German, Japanese, Turkish, Polish, Spanish, and French.
We discuss a piece of Sue’s more recent work that builds upon the themes addressed in Zoopolis. This is the paper “Animal Agora: Animal Citizens and the Democratic Challenge”, in Social Theory and Practice.
