Event | ShARC Tales Workshop 8-9 November 2018, Sheffield

This workshop is organised by ShARC (Sheffield Animal Studies Research Centre), a network for social science and humanities-based research on human-animal relations, and is supported by the BIOSEC Project.

This two-day workshop will also include a public keynote from Professor of Political Science and Asian American Studies at University of California, Irvine, Claire Jean Kim (author of the award-winning book, Dangerous Crossings: Race, Species, and Nature in a Multicultural Age) and a special roundtable presentation from Siobhan O’Sullivan, Visiting Fellow at ShARC and Senior Lecturer in Political Science at The University of New South Wales. The event will also feature an interview with Claire Jean Kim (recorded live) for the podcast Knowing Animals.

The objectives of this workshop will be to foster a stronger core network of animal studies students and researchers at The University of Sheffield that allows for interdisciplinary collaborations and a cross-pollination of ideas between faculties and departments.
