Symposium: The Animal Challenge to the Social Sciences

A symposium on 'The Animal Challenge to the Social Sciences' has been organized jointly by the University of Leicester and the University of Warwick. It will be held at College Court, University of Leicester, May 19-20 2016.

The symposium will consist of 16 participants, all leading figures in current debates about the place and significance of the study of non-human animals for the social sciences. It will consider why, and the extent to which, the social sciences have excluded nonhuman animals from their ontologies and their accounts of the social world, and will explore the ways in which they might respond to the challenge of fully incorporating nonhuman animals.
