Call for papers: Animal Intersections issue of Animal Studies Journal

http://ro.uow.edu.au/asj/

Animal Studies Journal is seeking submissions from scholars and creative practitioners for a special edition focusing on the themes of the forthcoming Australasian Animal Studies Association conference ‘Animal Intersections’, to be held at the University of Adelaide 3-5 July, 2017.

The journal is interested in papers which address the fractures, tensions and layers of intersection across human-animal relations, and in particular for the lives of non-human animals. Papers might engage with the practices and methods associated with theories of intersectionality in order to enrich the study of non- human animal lives and their interface with human society.

If you are interested in submitting an essay for consideration, please visit the journal website and consult submission rules and policies. Length of contributions is generally 4000–6000 words for articles, 1000–6000 for creative works plus images. Submission of articles: http://ro.uow.edu.au/cgi/submit.cgi?context=asj

Submissions are due no later than 31 July, 2017
