Mathieu Dubeau earned his Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science in 2021. He broadly studies the intersection of labor, ecology, and political theory to answer questions relating to justice, work, and the animal turn in the social sciences. In his dissertation, he explores how advances in our understanding of animal cognition are forcing us to rethink the meaning and scope of political consideration. His work reveals that humans who work with animals typically already reflect upon their obligations to them. Yet, because they work within larger humanist institutions, serious barriers exist to reconsidering and enacting those obligations.
