The CFP for the autumn 2019 BASN meeting has just gone live. ‘Movements’ will be held at the University of Leeds on 22 and 23 November, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for abstracts is Friday 19 July 2019. Presentations will be 20 minutes long and we hope to include work by individuals at different career stages.
Topics covered at this meeting might include (but are not limited to):
• Animal migrations
• Bodily motility
• Animals as conveyances
• Performance and performativity
Papers that deal with such issues in contemporary and historical settings are welcomed, and 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.
