„RECONFIGURING THE ‘HUMAN’/’ANIMAL’ BINARY – RESISTING VIOLENCE”
The 2nd Annual European Conference for Critical Animal Studies
Prague, Czech Republic, 15th – 16th October 2011
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.
We welcome participation from activists, academics (sociologists, philosophers, geographers,
historians, anthropologists etc.) and hybrids of the two. The conference will be completely vegan.
