Call for papers: Critical Animal Studies Europe

Dear colleagues and friends,

The third European Conference of Critical Animal Studies, which took place in Karlsruhe, Germany, in November 2013, co-organized by the Institute of Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis, was dedicated to the relation between critical animal studies and technoscientific developments. The conference engendered a number of fruitful debates among the participants which we are now hoping to evidence and extend with an anthology of texts on the subject. We therefore invite all participants of the conference, as well as other CAS scholars working with the theme to which the conference was dedicated, to submit a paper for the book “The Challenge of Technoscience and Critical Animal Studies” (working title), eds. Arianna Ferrari and Kris Forkasiewicz.

If you would like to submit a paper, please indicate your interest with an (updated) abstract of approx. 250-500 words via email to arianna.ferrari@kit.edu before 15 April 2014. Those who will be invited to contribute a chapter to the volume are asked to send in their full paper before 30 September 2014.

The length of your paper should be approximately 5000-7000 words (including references and footnotes).In case you would like to include pictures, graphs and tables, please shorten the text accordingly or ask the editors for further information. Please find attached a pdf version of this call for papers with the abstract of the book.

We are much looking forward to hearing from you.
