Human-Animal Studies Conference


January 25, 2014 


Lewis and Clark Law School


The Center for Animal Law Studies is proud to host Lewis and Clark’s first Interdisciplinary Human-Animal Studies Conference. This premier event will launch an ongoing human-animal studies collaboration between Lewis and Clark’s Law School, Graduate School of Education and Counseling, and Undergraduate School of Arts and Sciences and will provide both faculty members and students an opportunity to become more involved in this rapidly growing field of research. Featuring five diverse panels of faculty members who will discuss how animals have and continue to impact the human experience, this event promises to inspire anyone with an interest in the fascinating relationship between human kind and the rest of the animal kingdom. Following panel sessions, attendees will be invited to participate in a round table discussion regarding the future of this progressive and broad area of academia as a collaborative effort at Lewis and Clark. 


Registration will begin at 7:45am, and the event will conclude at approximately 5pm. A continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, and reception fare will be provided.
