2nd Annual European Conference for Critical Animal Studies, taking place at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, 15th - 16th October 2011
Please register by September 25th at the latest.
This two-day interdisciplinary conference will critically explore a variety of issues concerning the historic, current, and future situation of nonhuman animals across globally interconnected societies. Adopting a Critical Animal Studies perspective this conference seeks to interrogate not only the 'question of the animal' but also, with urgency, the deteriorating lived circumstances of many nonhuman animals. We are especially pleased to be hosting this conference in association with the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) as the 2nd Annual European Conference for Critical Animal Studies.
The 2nd annual European ICAS conference is an official pre-event for Minding Animals 2 - which takes place at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, 1-7th July 2012.
We welcome participation from activists, academics (sociologists, philosophers, geographers, historians, anthropologists etc.) and hybrids of the two. The conference will be completely vegan.
There will be more than 50 papers over two days, and the plenary speakers are as follows:
Dr. Elisa Aaltola - Senior Lecturer in Philosophy (University of Eastern Finland, Finland)
Dr. Erika Cudworth - Senior Lecturer in Politics and Sociology (The University of East London, UK)
Dr. Tom Tyler - Senior Lecturer in Philosophy and Culture (Oxford Brookes University, UK)
