Appointment of New Fellows

8th August 2016

The Centre is delighted to announce the appointment of ten 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:

  • Dr Jarrod Bailey (Cruelty Free International), Fellow
  • Dr Alan Bates (University College, London), Fellow
  • Professor Trent Dougherty (Baylor University), Fellow
  • Samual Garner (Independent Scholar), Associate Fellow
  • Dr Linda Johnson (University of Michigan-Flint), Fellow
  • Hadas Marcus (Tel Aviv University and Oranim Academic College of Education), Associate Fellow
  • Nuria Menéndez de Llano (University of Oviedo, Spain), Associate Fellow
  • Carlos Frederico Ramos de Jesus (São Paulo University, Brazil), Associate Fellow
  • Professor John Rossi (Drexel University), Fellow
  • Dr Katy Taylor (Cruelty Free International), Fellow

“All these individuals are pioneering new work in Animal Ethics – helping to press the 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.
