Appointment of New Fellows

1st April 2015

The Centre is delighted to announce the appointment of fourteen new Fellows of the Centre. Academics, both from the sciences as well as the humanities, who are researching or intending to research in the field are eligible for consideration. Under the rules, appointment is offered only once to successful individuals within their lifetime, and appointment is by invitation or nomination only. Only a small proportion of those nominated are eventually selected. The process of selection is rigorous, painstaking, and frequently lengthy, and individuals appointed have to have made (or be capable of making) an outstanding contribution to the field.

The new Fellows are:

  • Ryan Brand (Vanderbilt University), Associate Fellow
  • Professor the Ven. Alex Bruce (Australian National University), Fellow
  • Dr Margarita Carretero González (University of Granada, Spain), Fellow
  • Carl Tobias Frayne (University of Chicago), Associate Fellow
  • Professor Michael Gilmour (Providence University College, Manitoba, Canada), Fellow
  • Professor William Greenway (Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Texas), Fellow
  • Robyn Hederman (Principal Law Clerk in Supreme Court, Brooklyn, New York), Associate Fellow

  • Professor Edward C. Sellner ( Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota), Fellow
  • Joseph A. Tuminello, III (University of North Texas), Associate Fellow
  • Dr Kenneth Valpey (Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies), Fellow

“All these individuals are pioneering new work in Animal Ethics – helping to press he envelope in terms of new thinking”, said Director of the Centre, Professor Andrew Linzey. The Centre extends its warmest congratulations to the successful individuals. Their biographies can be viewed here.
