Earth Animal Communities: Exploring Collective Liberation is a two day conference hosted by The Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) Africa.
This conference, the first in Africa, will be held at the University of Cape Town from 31 August to 1 September 2013. The aim of this conference is to bring together academics, activists and anyone else wishing to know more about Critical Animal Studies. We particularly encourage emerging researchers (of any age) to present papers at the conference. It is understood that these might be works in progress.
An important aspect of Critical Animal Studies is “…the bridging of theory and action, academia and activism,” (Richard Twine, CAS Europe Director) and particular attention will be paid to exploring ways of translating theory into action.
