Animals and Social Change Conference

Liverpool Quaker Meeting House, UK
29th – 30th June 2017

ICE is pleased to support a two day event hosted by Edge Hill University’s Centre for Human Animal Studies (CfHAS).  The theme of this event is animals and social change.

  • What constitutes effective social change for other animals?
  • How do particular framings of animal ethics and veganism shape strategies for intervention and change?
  • How do the worlds of animal advocacy and academic research on human-animal relations speak to each other? Could more come from those interactions?
  • What role do visual media, the online vegan community and documentary film-making play in effecting social change?
  • How do different communities imagine progressive social change for animals taking place?

This conference will include paper and poster presentations, film screenings and workshop sessions focused on strategies for social change involving dialogue between academics, activists and advocates. The event is designed to facilitate time and space for discussion and will be of interest to those working in critical animal studies, advocacy, grassroots activism, animal media and the vegan business community.

Full details of the event will be available on the CfHAS website.

Registration:  closed.

This event is hosted by Edge Hill University’s Centre for Human Animal Studies (CfHAS) with support from the Institute for Creative Enterprise (ICE) and the Institute for Public Policy and Professional Practice (I4P).Edge Hill's Institute for Creative Enterprises and Institute for Public Policy and Professional Practice logos
