Prof. Bryant’s research lies at the intersections of ethical theory, environmental ethics, animal ethics, and feminist philosophy. It raises and responds to two questions. First, how can tragic moral conflict and the ethics of care help us to understand and improve the ways we relate to the rest of nature? Second, how can relations with wild animals help us to understand and improve the ethics of care? Prof. Bryant has taught courses in ethics, applied ethics, and political philosophy here at the University of Toronto. Before coming to philosophy, she studied seabirds nesting on islands from Maine to Nunavut.
