Dr Yoriko Otomo is a Lecturer in Law at SOAS, and recently a Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Centre for Global History, University of Oxford and the University of New South Wales. She received her doctorate (as well as a BA and Honours degree in Law) from the University of Melbourne.
Her research examines cross-cultural histories of global governance, looking in particular at the ways in which emerging patterns of economic interdependence changed representations of women and animals. She is working on a project, ‘White Revolutions’ that examines the development of the dairy industries in colonial Britain, and is also co-editing a book, ‘Making Milk: The Past, Present and Future of Our Primary Food’ with Professor Mathilde Cohen. Yoriko’s recent book, 'Unconditional Life: The International Law Settlement' was published by OUP and she has written various articles on environmental law history and animal law.
Dr. Otomo is a member of the Food Studies Centre and the Centre for the Study of Colonialism, Empire and International Law at SOAS. She is on the editorial board of the Australian Feminist Law Journal, and on the advisory board of the Journal for Critical Animal Studies. She is happy to supervise projects in international law, environmental law, animal law, legal history, and feminist and critical theory. Dr Yoriko Otomo has just published the following open access article on law and animals: http://www.losquaderno.professionaldreamers.net/
