The First Meeting of The North American Association for Critical Animal Studies (NAACAS)

“The first meeting of NAACAS, which was to take place in May 2020 in Kelowna, B.C., was canceled due to Covid-19.

Two years later, and given the ongoing pandemic, we are organizing a small, hybrid workshop on the conference theme of mass extinction, to take place in Toronto, Ontario (Raccoon Capital of the World), August 11 – 12, 2022. We are limiting in-person participation in the workshop due to the pandemic but videos of presentations will be available on the NAACAS website after the event. In addition, proceedings from the workshop will be available open access in the first 2023 issue of Animal Studies Journal.

The topic of the first meeting of NAACAS will be Critical Animal Studies Perspectives on Extinction, and it will include a remotely-delivered keynote presentation by extinction studies scholar Ursula Heise.

Thanks to Kelly Struthers Montford for hosting and applying for funding for this event!”
