The British Animal Studies Network’s upcoming meeting, ‘Movements,’ will be held at the University of Leeds on November 22-23, under the direction of Lourdes Orozco, Jonathan Saha and Tom Tyler. If you are interested in giving a paper addressing the topic ‘Movements’ from whatever disciplinary perspective please submit your title, with an abstract of no more than 200 words and a brief biography (also of no more than 200 words). These should be included within your email – i.e. not as attachments. Please send them to email@example.com. The deadline for abstracts is July 19. Presentations will be 20 minutes long and we hope to include work by individuals at different career stages. We would welcome papers that deal with such issues in contemporary and historical settings, and would especially like to see papers that address these issues from contexts outside the UK, including the Global South. Papers are welcomed from across animal studies, including disciplines such as (but not limited to) geography, anthropology, sociology, literary studies, art history, classical studies, history, science and technology studies, ethology, philosophy, psychology, behavioural sciences and ecology.
