Episode 2 - Non-Human Subjects & One Health


In this episode we discuss the legal geography of non-human subjects and the One Health approach to the pandemic with Professor Irus Braverman (SUNY Buffalo). Taking us through her career as one of the most significant scholars within Law & Geography, Professor Braverman guides us through her work with non-human subjects (like trees, zoos and more recently corals), talks with us about the importance of dynamizing established categories such as the Nature/Society binary, and discusses how they operate within law.

Irus Braverman is a professor at the law school of the State University of New York at Buffalo (USA), and also teaches at the geography department of that university.

She has recently published a number of books that explore the interrelatedness of law and nature:

In addition, she coedited the seminal The Expanding Spaces of Law: A Timely Legal Geography (Stanford University Press, 2014).
