The 2012 conference seeks to create an intellectually stimulating environment for the debate about the non-human and its role in (re)shaping (the future of) social science. We thus welcome papers addressing theoretical, methodological, and epistemological issues, the papers dealing with the past developments of the non-human concept, the evaluation of its strengths and weeknesses as well as empirical examples of its usage. We also strive to open the topic of the future development of the concept and the possibilities it can offer to researchers and scholars across social sciences.

"RECONFIGURING THE ‘HUMAN’/’ANIMAL’ BINARY – RESISTING VIOLENCE”
deadline: 3. 7. 2011
datum konání: 15.-16. 10. 2011
This two-day interdisciplinary conference will critically explore a variety of issues concerning the historic, current, and future situation of nonhuman animals across globally interconnected societies. Adopting a Critical Animal Studies perspective this conference seeks to interrogate not only the ‘question of the animal’ but also, with urgency, the deteriorating lived circumstances of many nonhuman animals. We are especially pleased to be hosting this conference in association with the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) as the 2nd Annual European Conference for Critical Animal Studies.
We welcome participation from activists, academics (sociologists, philosophers, geographers, historians, anthropologists etc.) and hybrids of the two. The conference will be completely vegan.

Sex, Gender, Species Wesleyan University, USA
deadline: 1. 10. 2010
datum konání: 25.-26. 2. 2011
The growing field of animal studies has turned critical attention to the real conditions and stakes of human-animal relations. It has also become a new and important focus for debates over identity and difference that have embroiled academic theory over the past quarter century. Recent scholarship on animal otherness as well as discussions of how to traverse boundaries of difference often draws upon a history of feminist theory and practice even as this borrowing remains unacknowledged. The purpose of this conference is to foreground the relations between feminist and animal studies and to examine the real and theoretical problems that are central to both fields of inquiry.
We are soliciting abstracts for papers that can be presented in 30 minute time slots. Selected presenters will receive a $1000 honorarium to cover travel expenses. We invite extended submissions of versions of presented papers for a special issue of Hypatia on Animal Others.
