Meeting Grounds: Mutual Ethics and Action in Animal Studies, Ecocriticism, and Posthumanism

In this virtual symposium, Dr. Joshua Bennett and Dr. Kath Weston will address our linked desires for actionable ethics generated across the fields of Animal Studies, Ecocriticism, and Posthumanism. By uniting through our shared stakes, we hope to develop a more ethical orientation and practice for our writing, our teaching, and our larger communities. Each of the two keynote panels will also feature three respondents and a period of Q&A.

Attendance is free and open to the public, but registration is required. The symposium program is available here.
