I will be speaking at FACT Liverpool and Edge Hill University’s symposium ‘Spring Assembly: The Living Planet’ about Four Legs Good, non-human personhood and legal rights.
“As society starts to grasp the magnitude of climate change, the FACT Spring Assembly invites you to join this year-long cultural inquiry. We will explore some of the questions that underpin the exhibition And Say the Animal Responded? and look at the role and function of art and film for representing, challenging and intervening in the environmental challenges we face.
Speakers include: Professor Claire Parkinson, Co-Director of the Centre for Human Animal Studies at Edge Hill University, Dr Nicola Triscott, CEO of FACT and curator of And Say the Animal Responded?, Professor Susanne Shultz, Evolutionary Ecology and Conservation Research Group at the University of Manchester, artist Kuai Shen Auson, and artist Jack Tan.”
Date And Time: Thu, 19 March 2020, 14:00 – 18:00
