Thinking and enacting justice in a multispecies world

12 – 20 June 2019
A series of four symposia to explore what justice means in a multispecies context.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney will host a series of four symposia featuring University of Sydney and international academics and experts to work in a focused and exploratory way on the question of what justice means in a multispecies context.

About the series

The four linked symposia will each comprise a set of formal presentations and an extended roundtable for informal reflection, discussion and project planning. We are inviting participants to present new and exploratory research.

The work presented will form the basis for an original publication: an edited volume or special issue of a journal. Each symposium will also become the basis of a multi-authored ‘state of the field’ paper to which participants will be invited to contribute. We hope that the conversations commenced during the symposia will enable future collaborations.

This series is proudly supported by:
