Benjamin Davis

Benjamin P. Davis is Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethics at the University of Toronto, Centre for Ethics. His current research brings together human rights and decolonial thinking. It includes the articles “The Promises of Standing Rock” (Humanity, 2021), “What Could Human Rights Do? A Decolonial Inquiry” (Transmodernity, 2020), and “Human Rights and Caribbean Philosophy: Implications for Teaching” (Journal of Human Rights Practice, 2021). Outside of this project on human rights, their research considers the concepts of Édouard Glissant and Simone Weil with a view toward political belonging in the present.
