The Centre for Human Animal Studies (CfHAS) will be holding its inaugural conference on Saturday 25th October 2014 at Edge Hill University. The conference will also mark the official launch of CfHAS, the first centre of its kind in the UK.

The aim of the conference and for CfHAS is to examine how rethinking our relations with animals can create meaningful social, policy, environmental, ethical and cultural change.
