Andrew Lopez


Andrew completed his BA at California State University, Fullerton, and his MA at Dalhousie University, where he wrote a thesis investigating Kantian perspectives on animal embodiment, personhood, and human dignity. Andrew's interests in philosophy are broad, but can be placed under the umbrellas of critical animal studies, political philosophy, and philosophy of race. His primary motivation has been a critical engagement with marginalized subjects and philosophies. To that end, Andrew's current projects are concerned with: the status of nonhuman animals in the philosophy of Wilfrid Sellars; the potential of Gloria Anzaldúa's thought for a liberatory non-anthropocentric ethics and politics; and the philosophy of Latin America and Latinx/Latin American identity.
