Join us for a one day interdisciplinary conference on the use and production of tools by animals and humans. A gathering of philosophers, anthropologists, artists and archaeologists. Keynote speakers are Kathelijne Koops (Ape Behaviour & Ecology Group, Department of Anthropology, University of Zurich, Switzerland) and Lambros Malafouris (Professor of Cognitive and Anthropological Archaeology, Institute of Archaeology, University of Oxford).
Following the success of the ‘Medical (Post) Humanities? Reassessing and Reimagining the Human' conference held in Sheffield on April 27th 2022 (funded by WRoCAH), we are planning a Special Issue of Interconnections: Journal of Posthumanism to respond to the questions raised during the event.

Wars have not only caused human losses, but often involved animals that were killed during the conflict. Animals have been used as military resources, as weapons, for scientific tests and in many other regards to “support” the human war effort. Only recently have animals become part of war commemorations and the discussion about animal rights will indeed intensify the debate about the role played by non-human war participants in the past.
Who has the right to survive? This shocking question captures the defining problem of our era. From medical care to mass incarceration, homelessness to mass starvation, the right to survive is hardly guaranteed in the U.S., and the question of survival only grows more urgent as global capitalism seems bent on squeezing out the last drops of petrocarbon profits from the withered husk of our planet. If we are to seize the right to survive, we must understand the ways that these issues are intertwined.
