Recent research in interspecies ethics, the place of plant life, and conceptions of the environmental testifies to escalating concerns regarding the insufficiency of existing interrogations into the historical privileging of some forms of life over others. These concerns emerge from a long history of global injustices that have resulted in environmental degradation as well as marginalization of both human and nonhuman populations through such practices as speciation, colonization, feminization, criminalization and dehumanization. This conference highlights the particularly urgent need for more rigorously articulated philosophies of the animal, the vegetal, and the environmental and seeks to reconsider conceptual boundaries between natural and artificial spaces and concepts of life.    Topics of interest may include, but are certainly not limited to:   conceptions of animal, plant, and human life environmental, animal, or food ethics eco-feminism theoretical, political, and/or historical distinctions between the human and the nonhuman environmental politics and policy rights discourse and its application to nonhuman others nature and the polis colonization and environmental exploitation eco-affectivity and interspecies attunements intergenerational environmentalism ethology and communication in animal and plant life environmental aesthetics dehumanization and oppression
