Australasian Animal Studies Conference 2017

Calls for Papers and EOI for artists - Animal Intersections

The 2017 Australasian Animal Studies Association Conference has been announced.  The theme is 'Animal Intersections'.  The conference will be held at The University of Adelaide on 3-5 July 2017.

Increasingly, Animal Studies turns towards the question of intersections: where, how and why human and animal lives intersect. Intersectionality offers us a way to explore interconnectedness to advance our understanding of the complex ways we relate to and interact with other animals and each other.

Keynote speakers are:

Professor James Serpell: Humane Ethics & Animal Welfare, University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine

Professor Colin Dayan: Humanities and Law, Vanderbilt University

Associate Professor Annie Potts: Cultural Studies and English and co-director of New Zealand, Centre for Human-Animal Studies (NZCHAS), University of Canterbury

Professor Fiona Probyn-Rapsey: Humanities and Social Inquiry, University of Wollongong

Professor Rachel Ankeny: History and Philosophy of Science, The University of Adelaide

Dr Dinesh Wadiwel, Human Rights, Sociology and Social Policy, The University of Sydney
