PhD defence ceremony

Eva Meijer develos a theory of political animal voices. She does this in three steps. First she looks at language, asking whether his is exclusively human and looking at the relation between developing a common language and creating common interspecies worlds. She then focuses on animal politics, drawing on insights from recent scholarship on political non-human animal agency. Thirdly, she focuses on the relation between political animal acts and existing human political acts and institutions.
