Anin Luo is interested in how ideas and culture intersect in histories of humanism, especially in the twentieth century. Through intellectual history and history of life sciences, she explores how humans’ understandings of animals and the environment reflect and constitute understandings of “humanity.” She is particularly concerned with the ethical and moral dimensions of such arguments about nonhumans. Anin retains strong interests in science and media, science and law, as well as historiography and theories of history.
Anin received her BA in History and Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry from Yale University and her MPhil in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge, where she was a Gates Cambridge Scholar.
