About Kyle Johannsen

I’m an academic philosopher who does research in animal and environmental ethics, and in political philosophy. I’m currently a Philosophy Instructor at Trent University and Wilfrid Laurier University, and I’m a member of the Animals in Philosophy, Politics, Law, and Ethics (A.P.P.L.E.) research group at Queen's University. My most recent academic book – Wild Animal Ethics: The Moral and Political Problem of Wild Animal Suffering (Routledge) – attracted enough attention that I was invited to do some interviews: I appeared on the New Books in Philosophy, Knowing Animals, and Sentientism podcasts; and I was interviewed on the Canadian news show Forum Daily. I'm mainly interested in interviewing authors of animal studies books, especially animal studies books connected to philosophy, effective altruism, environmental studies, or political science. I'm also interested in interviewing authors of literary books that explore animal studies themes.
