Increasingly, Animal Studies turns towards the question of intersections: where, how and why human and animal lives intersect. Intersectionality offers us a way to explore interconnectedness to advance our understanding of the complex ways we relate to and interact with other animals and each other. We invite proposals that address the following broad themes:

· Health, wellness, illness, pathologies
· The social lives of animals and humans
· The intersections of species, race, gender, ablism and sexualities
· Industrialism, capitalism, geographies and environments
· Veg*n Studies
· Religion, tradition and secularity
· Culture, symbology and representation

Presentations should be 20 minutes in length with an additional 10 minutes allocated for questions

Submissions in the form of 300-600 word abstracts should be emailed to by Wednesday the 18th January, 2017.
