The Anthropocene describes a period of geological time dominated by homo sapiens and marked by the significant impact of human activity on the planet. At a time when the natural world is ever more subject to human intervention, interspecies relations face many challenges. If the cultural and scientific moment of the Anthropocene puts ‘us’ in our place, then it is time to reconsider our place with them, the other animals.
The 5th AASG conference will be hosted by HARN (Human Animal Research Network) at the University of Sydney
This 5th Conference of the Australian Animal Studies Group will bring together voices from a wide range of disciplines and beyond the academy to examine how new knowledge of human–animal relations requires novel starting points, critical tools and cross-disciplinary connections.
