Dr Danielle Sands leads an exhibition walkthrough of Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings.

Dr Danielle Sands is Lecturer in Comparative Literature and Thought at Royal Holloway, University of London. As a writer and academic, Dr Danielle Sands explores contemporary responses to non–human life and cross–species relations, bridging disciplines such as Animal Studies, Environmental Ethics and the Anthropocene. She is particularly interested in generating dialogues between philosophical aesthetics, critical theory and literary studies. Her research questions the depictions of animals in the literature of writers including J.M Coetzee, Franz Kafka, Karen Joy Fowler and Yann Martel as well as the theoretical work of Jacques Derrida and Donna Haraway. From bioethics and animal welfare through to artificial intelligence, Sands challenges conceptions of the ‘human.’
