Voices of the Dunes + roundtable discussion A Series of More-Than-Human Encounters
In the second instalment of A Series of More-Than-Human Encounters we are inviting researchers, activists and artists in a three-day-programme to explore the meaning and potential of justice in a multi-species post-imperialist world. Should we confer fundamental rights to animals and natural formations - such as lakes, the seas, rainforests and the soil? What can historical, present-day and future human and more-than-human alliances of resistance teach us? How are the worldwide decolonial struggles related to the global and local struggles for the live, safety and autonomy of non-human animals?
