Life in the Anthropocene
Registration is now open for the Australian Animals Studies Group's (AASG) 5th conference, Life in the Anthropocene, to be held at the University of Sydney.
The Anthropocene describes a period of geological time dominated by homo sapiens and marked by the significant impact of human activity on the planet. At a time when the natural world is ever more subject to human intervention, interspecies relations face many challenges. If the cultural and scientific moment of the Anthropocene puts us in our place, then it is time to reconsider our place with them, the other animals.
