deadline for submissions:

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.

International Interdisciplinary

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.    

Suggested topics:

- representation of non-human animals in literature, film, music and art;

Literature & Religion
