More on Clare Palmer

Clare is currently Professor of Philosophy at Texas A&M University. She was the founding editor of the journal Worldviews: Environment, Culture, Religion(Brill Academic Press) and held the position of President of the International Society for Environmental Ethics from 2007-2010. She was a member of the committee responsible for the 2019 US National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine report Forest Health and Biotechnology: Possibilities and Considerations. Her main research areas are environmental and animal ethics, and the ethics of emerging technologies. She is particularly interested in ethical questions raised by new conservation strategies and technologies – especially genetic technologies - being developed to respond to global environmental and climate change.

In addition to numerous articles and edited collections, Clare has published four books on environmental and animal ethics: Environmental Ethics (ABC-CLIO, 1997), Environmental Ethics and Process Thinking (Oxford University Press, 1998), Animal Ethics in Context (Columbia University Press, 2010), and Companion Animal Ethics (with Peter Sandoe and Sandra Corr – Wiley-Blackwell, 2015). Among other projects, Clare is working on a new co-authored book Wildlife Ethics: Animal Ethics in Wildlife Management and Conservation, contracted to Wiley Blackwell.

Venue Information

The precise venue will be announced here in April 2020, but it will definitely be on the Edgbaston Campus of the University of Birmingham. The most important factor for us in deciding venues for our events is accessibility: we will make sure that the venue is accessible to people with a disability. More information about accessibility and facilities will be posted in April 2020 as well.
