The 2014 North American Critical Animal Studies Conference invites papers, presentations, and workshops from scholars, activists, and artists working on ethical and political issues concerning nonhuman animals. This year’s venue in Houston, Texas offers a unique opportunity to investigate the intersections of oppression in a locale where many of the pressing concerns about bioengineering, pollution, and animal experimentation are centered and present. The conference aims to investigate the intersections between non/human oppression in terms of race, gender, sexuality, postcoloniality, and beyond.

Presentations should be fifteen to twenty minutes in length. We are receptive to different and innovative formats including but not limited to panels and workshops. You may propose individual or group panel presentations, but please specify the structure of your proposal. Submit ~300-word proposals including your name(s), title, organizational affiliation, field of study or activism, and A/V needs to icasnorthamerica@gmail.com by January 15th.

We welcome presentations from a variety of academic and non-academic fields, including but not limited to:

Activism and advocacy
Animal liberation
Biopolitical thought
Bioscience and biotechnology
Critical legal studies
Cultural studies
Disability studies
Ecology
Ethics (applied / philosophical)
Feminist theory
Critical Race theory
Film studies
Political economy

For any questions concerning submission relevance, conference details, or in general feel free to e-mail us at icasnorthamerica@gmail.com. We are also interested in soliciting people who are interested in tabling during the conference. If interested please contact us. More information concerning tabling will be forthcoming.
