The Students for Critical Animal Studies (SCAS), rooted in animal liberation and anarchism, is an international association of students, from high schools to online colleges to graduate schools, dedicated to the abolition of animal and ecological exploitation, and to dismantle all systems of domination and oppression, in hopes for a just, equitable, inclusive, and peaceful world. SCAS challenges students to view social justice from a more inclusive and intersectional perspective, while providing a forum for the meeting of academia and activism.
This 7th annual conference will provide a platform for students, activists, and professors to critically assess the animal liberation, oppression, and domination theoretically and empirically. Our hope is that the conference will encourage both a productive reflection that challenges normalcy of systemic oppression that implements discrimination and networking among those who do academic and pragmatic social justice work.
Presentations can take the form of a talk, spoken word/poetry reading, interactive projects, workshops, or readings of short original works of fiction.
Questions should be addressed to Nathan and Sarah at the email address above.
Possible topics include, but not limited to:
Art and Activism
