ShARC Tales

8–9 November 2018
Humanities Research Institute, University of Sheffield

The inaugural ShARC Tales Workshop was a two-day programme that took place at the Humanities Research Institute, University of Sheffield, on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th November 2018.

The programme included a public keynote from Professor of Political Science and Asian American Studies at University of California, Irvine, Claire Jean Kim (author of the award-winning book, Dangerous Crossings: Race, Species, and Nature in a Multicultural Age) and a special roundtable presentation from Siobhan O’Sullivan, Visiting Fellow at ShARC and Senior Lecturer in Political Science at The University of New South Wales.

The aim of the workshop was to foster a stronger core network of animal studies students and researchers at The University of Sheffield that allows for interdisciplinary collaborations and a cross-pollination of ideas between faculties and departments.

The event was organised by ShARC and supported by the BIOSEC Project.
