    Br. Denys Janiga is a Benedictine monk at Saint John's Abbey. He was born in southern Ontario and has lived in four provinces and one territory in Canada. Before entering monastic life, he worked in developmental disabilities, social assistance and homelessness policy, and union-management relations. Since 2010 he has become interested in the non-human turn in theory and sees this as a way to counter anthropocentrism.
