Animal Rights: Advocacy and Academia, 15-16 May, 2020, National University of Ireland Galway. Deadline is January 21, 2020. This symposium will address the academy’s comparatively recent focus on animal rights and consider the relationship of that academic interest to the practice of advocacy for nonhuman animals, with the aim of investigating how animal advocacy and animal scholarship can support and inform each other. We seek abstracts of scholars at any career stage from any discipline addressing questions of how moral issues around the use of nonhuman animals have been regarded both within and without academia, and how those issues connect with veganism. Abstracts no longer than 250 words should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
