CALL FOR PAPERS
Our first call garnered many fine proposals. We need, however, one or two more proposals to complete our double issue. We are happy to consider new proposals or revised proposals that have been previously considered.
Please see the full CFP below. These are the current tentative headings on our contents page:
Humans – Artis Natura, vol. 2, n° 1 – Winter 2018
The editorial committee at Artis Natura is searching for emerging artists and researchers to contribute to a thematic issue on its cultural online platform. This project has taken the form of a blog reviewed and published by an editorial committee, where researchers, artists, and writers can share reflections on the reciprocal relationship between humans and nature.
This third issue will focus on humans. The questioning of anthropocentrism, stimulated by the realities of the current environmental crisis, has raised concerns about the space that humanity occupies in the natural world.
The College English Association solicits abstracts from its members on the special focus of the 90th SAMLA conference from November 2-4 in Birmingham: “Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies.” Presenters are invited to share their liberation pedagogy, including assignments or strategies that encourage activism, or to consider ways in which literature, film, and culture augment or inform socio-political movements and promote social justice.

Conference on Animal Studies
of BA, MA and PhD students
Kraków, 25-26 October 2018
We speak in the name of animals. We kill in the name of pleasure. We think in the name of animals. We subdue the earth in the name of gods. We make them suffer in the name of science. We fight in the name of animals. We abuse in the name of profit. Therefore, we organize a conference - to think, to discuss, to exchange.
- representation of non-human animals in literature, film, music and art;
