Yesterday, our friends at Our Hen House (OHH) posted about the next Critical Animal Studies conference. Taking place in June, this year’s conference theme is Breaking the Silence on Global and Local Intersections of Ethnicity, Spirituality, and Nonhuman Animals.
We appreciate Marriann Sullivan of OHH’s comments about the dangers of the increasing popularity animal studies – potentially normalizing abuse and exploitation of animals because there is no critical lens. That’s why the critical in critical animal studies is so important. Critical Animal Studies by nature connects the dots, so these conferences are always full of engaging “connectionist” presentations. We can’t wait to see how this year’s conference shapes up as papers, presentations, and panels are chosen. See you there?
