The third conference in the non-human series will concentrate on the non-human and its role in (re)shaping (the future of) social science. The call for papers is now open! Based on the two preceding conferences, the topic of the non-human will be divided into three basic thematic sections (plants and animals; material culture and spaces; technologies and institutions). Apart from directly addressing these issues on an empirical level, we welcome papers devoted to developing epistemological, theoretical as well as methodological understanding of the non-human in contemporary social sciences, as well as papers dealing with the issues of changes in the scholarly attitude and approach to the non-human, presenting novel ways of scholarly work rooted in the engagement with the non-human topic, and reflecting the problems arising from such endeavor. The conference takes place in Prague, Czech republic, on the 17th and 18th November.
