Last January RHEA co-organized together with VUB Crosstalks and Kaaitheater the event ‘Justice in a Multispecies World: Lecture by Professor Maneesha Deckha’. Maneesha Deckha is an intersectional posthumanist legal scholar and full professor in law at the University of Victoria in Canada. Her work engages with animal questions in relation to categories and theories of gender, race, disability, postcolonialism, ecofeminism, settler-colonialism and decolonization. In this event she gives a 30-minute lecture about her new book ‘Animals as Legal Beings: Contesting Anthropocentric Legal Orders’ (University of Toronto Press, 2021) after which she is interviewed by RHEA-member Mariska Jung followed by a Q&A with the Zoom audience.
