Yvette Wijnandts holds a Masters degree in gender and ethnicity studies from the University of Utrecht. For her Ph.D. research at the University of Adelaide, she uses postcolonial theory and critical feminist theory on ethics to gain a deeper understanding of the discourses surrounding animals in the food industry. She aims to show how different structures of power intersect, specifically that of culture and religion, with the issue of animal rights in a globalizing world.
