Conflict and Struggle, Resistance and Change
2015 ICAS Oceania Conference, Melbourne 9-11 July
In a world of conflict and struggle, resistance and change, there is an ever present need for discussion and analysis. For the third annual ICAS Oceania conference we aim to focus on the multiplicities of struggle and resistance in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. By undertaking a Critical Animal Studies analysis of both the local and the global issues arising from interlocking oppressions and repression, we seek to foster new discussions on how to facilitate change.

Open call for papers
The Institute for Critical Animals Studies (ICAS) Oceania conference organising committee are seeking panels proposals, workshops and papers providing comparative engagement across countries and regions. Intersectional and transdisciplinary panels, visual art pieces and installations, and bilingual panels are encouraged. Non-academic and activist papers that explore grassroots movements are also sought.
