The third European Conference of Critical Animal Studies, which took place in Karlsruhe, Germany, in November 2013, co-organized by the Institute of Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis, was dedicated to the relation between critical animal studies and technoscientific developments. The conference engendered a number of fruitful debates among the participants which we are now hoping to evidence and extend with an anthology of texts on the subject. We therefore invite all participants of the conference, as well as other CAS scholars working with the theme to which the conference was dedicated, to submit a paper for the book “The Challenge of Technoscience and Critical Animal Studies” (working title), eds. Arianna Ferrari and Kris Forkasiewicz. If you would like to submit a paper, please indicate your interest with an (updated) abstract of approx. 250-500 words via email to before 15 April 2014. Those who will be invited to contribute a chapter to the volume are asked to send in their full paper before 30 September 2014. The length of your paper should be approximately 5000-7000 words (including references and footnotes).In case you would like to include pictures, graphs and tables, please shorten the text accordingly or ask the editors for further information. if you want a pdf version of this call for papers with the abstract of the book please write to

Web-Konferenz: Neither Man Nor Beast – Patriarchy, Speciesism, and Deconstructing Oppressions

Neither Man Nor Beast: Patriarchy, Speciesism, & Deconstructing Oppressions
February 23, 2014 – Web

You are invited to attend a WEB-based conference on February, 23rd, 2014 to
empower minds, bodies and communities. Moving beyond the typical boundaries
of social justice activism, this conference will be advocating for
intersectional liberation across species and social identities.

By creating a space to discuss critical feminist theories and offering our
unique experiences under patriarchy, we will be re-evaluating how
oppressions relate in our lives and our communities and how best to
integrate this into advocacy for the rights of non-human and human animals
alike. Critiquing the limitations of popular and mainstream animal rights
campaigns currently, and by offering solutions, we hope to advocate for a
more unified and diverse movement.

Ultimately, we wish to develop a more complete understanding of oppression
and justice. Creating allies aware of the intersectionality of oppression
can afford us more opportunities to collaborate in meaningful and mutually
inspiring ways. Our diversity of ideas and experiences offer potential to
build a more comprehensive, sustainable and effective movement against
oppression. We need to strive for creating safer communities and more
responsible allies, in hopes of beginning to truly break down the existing
hierarchical power structures, rather than reinforcing them. This
conference will function as a platform for dialogue, networking and
organization with others in creating a more resilient rights liberation
movement for all.
