Are Animals Persons: Implications for Domestication and Farming
Dr. Celia Deane-Drummond, via video link from Oxford, UK
Dr. Celia Deane-Drummond is now a senior research fellow and the inaugural director of Laudato Si’ Research Institute at Campion Hall, University of Oxford. She was formerly a professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame where she served as the inaugural director of the Center for Theology, Science and Human Flourishing. Her research, writing, and teaching focus on constructive systematic theology informed by Roman Catholic contemporary and historical sources in its relationship with creation and the natural world as understood by the biological and human sciences. She has made distinguished contributions to the new discipline of ecotheology, reflecting her early interest in botany as well as her later concentration on Christian theological studies, and she also has written searchingly about the theological and ethical implications of new developments in genetics.
