In the burgeoning field of critical animal studies, Queen’s Philosophy is establishing a home for scholars focused on the ethical, legal and political dimensions of human-animal relationships. We live in an unprecedented era of animal exploitation, habitat destruction, and species loss, prompting many to reconsider the ethics and sustainability of our treatment of non-human animals. Our goal is to help bring ‘the animal question’ into the mainstream of academic research and public debate in Canada, focusing in particular on the moral, legal and political dimensions of how human-animal relations are governed.
LUCASN is a platform for the growing field of Critical Animal Studies (CAS), centring its goals on education, continued networking and research.
CAS has been expanding in both research and education at Lund University. This has among other things led to the establishment of the award winning and highly sought after course Critical Animal Studies: Animals in Society, Culture and the Media, the ongoing hosting of seminar series, research conferences, and the active involvement in building an extensive network of national and international scholars.
