The London Graduate School and the Centre for Arts and Humanities Research at the Natural History Museum London present:
Unruly Creatures 2 : Creative Revolutions: click here
This is the second in a series of one-day conferences that analyse and discuss the various ways in which animals have been used in the humanities and contemporary arts, the political and theoretical implications of this use, and the manner in which animals have resisted this appropriation such that they might enter into political discourse. With examples taken from philosophy, history, and the arts, it will also examine whether there is an animal political identity, and even new ways of thinking about struggle, revolt, and revolution that might be called ‘animal’.
