On Sunday May 25th, the day before the ”Exploring the Animal Turn” symposium, we will arrange a pre-symposium event in the garden of The Pufendorf Institute!
The idea of the pre-symposium is to create a social event, where people working within the field of human-animal studies will get a chance to meet and talk under more informal circumstances.
We have a great program for the event (see below), including short presentations by invited speakers, live music, artistic interventions, and lots of good vegan food!
It is all free of charge and you don’t need to sign up in advance!
Artistic investigations by artists Lisa Nyberg, Imri Sandström and EvaMarie Lindahl
