Abstracts are invited for a workshop on ‘The Political Turn in Animal Liberation’ at the MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory.
Recent work on animal liberation has seen a change in emphasis towards exploring how political communities should relate to non-human animals. With this in mind, abstracts are invited on the following suggested topics:
- Animals, rights, and justice
- Animals and citizenship
- Animal liberation
- Liberalism and animals
- Animals and political thought
If you would like to present a paper at this workshop, please send a 500-word abstract (or a full paper) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st June 2012.
Contributions are welcome from the fields of political theory/philosophy, history of philosophy, and ethics.
