Conference 2021: Animal Futures

The sixth international animal rights conferene “Animal Futures. Animal rights in activism and academia.” will take place at the Estonian Traditional Music Center in Viljandi on May 8 and 9, 2021.

This conference focuses on imagining futures for human-animal relations, in a world that is rapidly transforming. We invite papers to engage for example, with the following issues, from critical animal studies perspectives:

  • What challenges and opportunities do global crises present for theorising and working towards animal liberation?
  • What should and could be some new directions in animal advocacy activism?
  • How can feminist, queer, disability, postcolonial and other perspectives inform our understanding of other animals and our relations to them?

We are looking forward to contributions from academics and activists.Please send your abstract (max 300 words) to

All the practical information (including speakers, registration, food, accommodation, fees) will be published later in 2020.

NB! The conference will also be live streamed.
