Ron Broglio works in areas of animal studies and culture, British Romanticism, and continental philosophy.

Broglio's research focuses on how philosophy and aesthetics can help us rethink the relationship between humans and the environment. His book "Technologies of the Picturesque: British Art, Poetry, and Instruments 1750-1830" develops the phenomenological engagement between bodies and technology in the British landscape aesthetic. His work "On the Surface: Thinking with Animals and Art" (2011) develops a language for animal studies through examination of contemporary art and phenomenology. His most recent book is "Beasts of Burden: Biopolitics, Labor, and Animal Life in British Romaniticism" (2017).

In a culture that measures everything according to ordering and efficiency … to walk is to slow down and take a human pace rather than a machine pace.
