A new visiting researcher

We warmly welcome Silvia Panizza who will be a visiting researcher at the Centre (1 May - June 31, 2019). Panizza is a lecturer in Ethics at the University of East Anglia. She works in different domains of ethics (particularly meta ethical questions relating to moral realism, moral motivation, and moral knowledge), moral psychology, and applied ethics, as well as philosophy of religion and of literature. She is currently leading a multi-disciplinary network concerning the possibility and challenges of ending animal exploitation (Vegan Studies Network). During her stay at the Centre, she will work on a new project combining the question of moral impossibility, mostly drawn from Iris Murdoch, with animal ethics, exploring how the experience of impossibility in ethics plays out in one's  attitudes towards animals and related behaviour
