AASG@ Sydney: Life in the Anthropocene July 8-10 2013.
University of Sydney, Australia
Deadline for submission of Abstracts closing soon: Feb 8th 2013
This 5th Conference of the Australian Animal Studies Group will bring together voices from a wide range of disciplines and beyond the Academy to examine how new knowledge of human–animal relations requires novel starting points, critical tools and cross-disciplinary connections.
We welcome papers that explore the implications of living in the Anthropocene for human–animal relationships. What is the impact of human activity upon non-human life? How do lessons from the past shed light on present and future orientations? How do different disciplines, institutions and groups (community, government and activist) respond to the myriad issues raised by living in the Anthropocene?
Potential themes include:
Wildness, re-wilding and conservation
Biodesign, breeding, domestication
Imagining human–animal futures
Animals and the law, media and public policy
