Sebastian Manley

I live in London, where I work as a freelance copy-editor and proofreader (see www.manley-editorial.com). I have a PhD in film studies from the University of East Anglia.

I’m interested in what people think about non-human animals and about our attitudes towards them; on many matters I don’t really know exactly what my position is, although I am a vegetarian and I do think we owe animals a lot more consideration than we currently give them (for a short introduction to the argument made by Peter Singer and others that causing suffering to animals – and, by implication, eating most forms of meat – is wrong, see http://stephenlaw.blogspot.com/2007/11/brief-intro-to-singer-on-speciesism.html). If you have any thoughts on animals, film, or animals in film, I’d love to hear them.
