Event description

Description

This workshop focuses on the work of three scholars whose work, in different ways, has engaged with animals' lives in the fraught, tight confines of the Anthropocene. The authors come at animals’ lives from different conceptual, ethical and geographical perspectives. They share a concern with how we might know, write, and advocate better for future human-animal relations – or future animal anthroposcenes. The workshop will focus on a discussion of three, pre-circulated papers. These will be introduced by their author and set in the context of their wider research projects. Discussion will follow each paper. There will be a short break between papers.
