Northern Animals brings together animal studies and environmental humanities scholars at various stages of their academic careers across the North of England, and beyond, to share ideas and research, and stimulate new ways of thinking about animals and the natural world. We particularly welcome PGRs and past events have had majority attendance from PGRs. It offers the opportunity for PhD students at the White Rose Universities to create interdisciplinary collaboration across the three institutions as well as with students based at other universities and we will actively encourage WRoCAH students to attend.
Inspired by the focus of our research network, we have organised the third Northern Animals workshop broadly around the themes of biodiversity loss, species extinction and conservation in the age of the Anthropocene. The one-day event will consist of a series of informal workshops and talks.
