We are delighted that Ricardo Ontillera, who gained his PhD with us in 2020, is returning to spend a year (starting this autumn) as a SeNSS Post-Doctoral Fellow. He will have Professor Garry Marvin and Professor Rebecca Cassidy (Goldsmiths) as his mentors. During this time, he and Garry will work on a project exploring the notions of casta (caste) and raza (race) as applied to the animals in Spanish cockfighting and bullfighting. Ricardo will also be working on transforming his PhD thesis, on cockfighting in the Canary Islands, into a monograph for publication.
