Will Kymlicka is the Canada Research Chair in Political Philosophy in the Philosophy Department at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada, where he has taught since 1998. He is the co-author with Sue Donaldson of Zoopolis: A Political Theory of Animal Rights, published in 2011, and now translated into German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Turkish and Polish. Zoopolis argues that animals belong at the heart of democratic political theory – defending rights of citizenship for domesticated animals and sovereignty rights for wild animals – and its ideas have helped launch the recent ‘political turn’ in animal ethics. Will and Sue have continued developing their model of a zoopolis, and its implications for animal advocacy, legal reform, and alliances with other social justice movements. Their recent work has appeared in Politics and Animals; The Philosophy and Politics of Animal Liberation; Journal of Animal Ethics; Canadian Perspectives on Animals and the Law; and the Oxford Handbook of Animal Studies. Will directs the Animals in Philosophy, Politics, Law and Ethics research group at Queen’s University, including its postdoctoral fellowship program, and teaches courses in animals and political theory and in animals and the law. He will join us in México as an Invited Speaker and Panelist.
