Paula Arcari

Paula Arcari is a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow within the Centre for Human Animal Studies at Edge Hill University. Her three-year project The visual consumption of animals: challenging persistent binaries’ aims to support transformational change in the way humans conceive and interact with nature. In her 2019 book, Making Sense of Food Animals, Paula drew on Foucault's regime of power/knowledge/pleasure and theorisations of order to explore how animals and 'meat' continue to be (re)constituted as edible. This research led to an interest in caesuras, ruptures, paradoxical spaces, and heterotopia for their capacity 'to trouble habitual ways of thinking and acting about animals' - an intent that continues to inform her research and writing about and for all exploited animals.
