BIO

Ron Broglio's research focuses on how philosophy and aesthetics can help us rethink the relationship between humans and the environment. His bookTechnologies of the Picturesque: British Art, Poetry, and Instruments 1750-1830 (Bucknell 2008) develops the phenomenological engagement between bodies and technology in the British landscape aesthetic. His work On the Surface: Thinking with Animals and Art (University of Minnesota Press, Fall 2011) develops a language for animal studies through examination of contemporary art and phenomenology. Current projects include a dairy cattle art installation at the University of Waterloo, a book project on British Romantic peasant poetry and agriculture, and a manifesto on the animal revolution.
