Political Animals: an interdisciplinary workshop
This event is hosted by the University of Amsterdam and financially supported by de Jonge Akademie
This workshop aims to bring together researchers across the disciplinary boundaries of history, cultural studies, geography, anthropology and sociology to study the political role of animals, and specifically their mediating role within (interhuman) conflicts, solidarities and inequalities. Building on the animal turn within various disciplines, the workshop seeks to develop a “more-than-human” approach to politics and conflict, with an emphasis on animals’ use of space.
