Death of Professor Priscilla Cohn

6th July 2019

It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Associate Director Professor Priscilla Cohn.

Andrew and Priscilla were friends and collaborators for over twenty years. She worked tirelessly to help establish the Centre, indeed without her support and friendship the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics would not have come into existence. As Associate Director, she was co-editor of the Journal of Animal Ethics and the Palgrave Macmillan Animal Ethics Series. She was an established philosopher in her own right, with a great deal of her work being dedicated to writing on animals, especially the plight of deer for whom she spent so much time advocating.

We mourn the loss of a friend and champion for the animals.
