We welcome presentations from students with a variety of educational experience and early career researchers in anthrozoology and related fields (such as human-animal studies, natural sciences, or philosophy).Proposed presentations on topics in all areas of anthrozoology will be considered, and applicants from any university, college or country are welcomed. The founders are graduates of the Anthrozoology programs at Exeter and embrace the Exeter Anthrozoology as Symbiotic Ethics (EASE) ethos. We ask you to please read the EASE position on anthrozoology as symbiotic ethics as papers that do not align with the conference ethos of non-harm, respect, and individual autonomy will not be considered.

The final programme and abstract book will be sent to registered participants (together with Zoom links) the week of the conference

Senior academics and professionals are very welcome to attend, providing they understand this is a student conference and frame any questions or feedback in a nurturing and constructive manner. Please consider joining us to support your students and/or meet the next generation of aspiring anthrozoologists!
