The Political Turn in Animal Liberation

The Political Turn in Animal Liberation

Abstracts are invited for a workshop on ‘The Political Turn in Animal Liberation’ at the MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory.

Recent work on animal liberation has seen a change in emphasis towards exploring how political communities should relate to non-human animals. With this in mind, abstracts are invited on the following suggested topics:

  • Animals, rights, and justice
  • Animals and citizenship
  • Animal liberation
  • Liberalism and animals
  • Animals and political thought

If you would like to present a paper at this workshop, please send a 500-word abstract (or a full paper) to by 1st June 2013.

Contributions are welcome from the fields of political theory/philosophy, history of philosophy, and ethics.

Panel Convenors:

Steve Cooke (Manchester)


Les Mitchell (Fort Hare)


Tony Milligan (Aberdeen)
