Emerging Scholars Workshop in Law, Animals and Society

Kelowna, BC, Canada

Hosted by the Animals & Society Research Initiative (University of Victoria) and supported by the Brooks Animal Studies Academic Network and the Brooks Institute for Animal Rights Law & Policy

The Animals & Society Research Initiative at the University of Victoria is delighted to invite submissions for its Emerging Scholars Workshop in Law, Animals, and Society from law students, graduate students, and early-career scholars focused on socio-legal analyses aimed at producing positive interventions for animals in law and society. The Workshop is intended to be a premier socio-legal and critical animal forum where emerging scholars can receive close attention to their animal-centered work and benefit from productive feedback in view of publication from experienced scholars in the field. The Workshop is also designed to be a forum to enable participants to engage closely with the work of their peers and interact with senior scholars in a smaller setting. It is an event aimed at nurturing the next generation of socio-legal scholars and scholarship in animal rights, law, and policy through inspiring conversations and connections and generating scholarly community.
