Dr Yamini Narayanan is an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Senior Fellow at the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation.

A panel discussion from the 2016 Institute for Critical Animal Studies Oceania Conference, held in Canberra (Australia).

Panelists: Three Australian activist scholars - Jess Ison, Nick Pendergrast and Lara Drew. 

The panelists reflect on their experiences of anarchism and animal liberation; a critical dialogue into the causes of speciesism whilst taking a broader view of social justice and the nature of oppression. 

We feature a talk by Dr Andrew Knight, recorded at a recent Animal Justice Party seminar in Melbourne. Andrew describes how he got to where he is today - setting up a new centre for animal welfare at the University of Winchester in the UK. He discusses how people may become professional animal advocates. He also talks about the upcoming distance learning Masters course in Animal Welfare.

ARE ANIMALS OUR BEST FRIENDS IN COMBATTING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

Phil Arkow from the Link Coalition tells us "Animal abuse is a human welfare issue"

Ahead of the Institute for Critical Animal Studies Oceania conference, we talk to the opening night speaker, Dr Dinesh Wadiwel.

Dr Wadiwel is a Lecturer in Human Rights and Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Sydney. His research interests include sovereignty and the nature of rights, violence, race and critical animal studies. In his forthcoming book, The War against Animals, he argues that our mainstay relationships with billions of animals are essentially hostile and that our sovereign claim of superiority over other animals is founded on nothing else but violence.
