ICAS - Dr Dinesh Wadiwel - The War against Animals
Ahead of the Institute for Critical Animal Studies Oceania conference, we talk to the opening night speaker, Dr Dinesh Wadiwel.
Dr Wadiwel is a Lecturer in Human Rights and Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Sydney. His research interests include sovereignty and the nature of rights, violence, race and critical animal studies. In his forthcoming book, The War against Animals, he argues that our mainstay relationships with billions of animals are essentially hostile and that our sovereign claim of superiority over other animals is founded on nothing else but violence.
