In the Spotlight: Anthony Nocella II

Anthony Nocalla II

In the first of the In the Spotlight posts, which I’ll be using to highlight some of most influential and inspirational individuals I know, past and present, I want to draw attention to Anthony Nocella II.

Anthony is an author, educator, and peacemaker working on his Ph.D. at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School and a professor of Criminology, Sociology, and Peace and Global Studies at Le Moyne College and SUNY, Cortland. He also teaches Life Skills at a New York youth detention facility and is the Executive Director of the Central New York Peace Studies Consortium.

I’m fortunate enough to be working with Anthony in several areas, but do so largely through my capacity as Chief Editor of the Journal for Critical Animal Studies (JCAS). Anthony’s tireless energy and commitment to build peace through dialogue for humans, other animals and the Earth is truly magnificent. 

Without doubt Anthony is certainly playing an increasingly influential role within the most interesting initiatives and collaborations that are emerging from the (more radical and progressive) academic and activist communties. For more information about his research and current commitments please visit his main webpage: PEACE BUILDING .

I joined Sheffield Hallam University as a Lecturer in Economic Geography in 2006, and was the Course Leader for the B.A. (Hons) Human Geography degree between 2013-2015. Teaching Interests I have a broad interest in many radical approaches within both Human Geography, and other related social sciences. My particular expertise explores alternative/ post-capitalist forms of work and organization; anarchist and dissident geographies; geographies of activism and resistance; and critical animal geographies.
