On this episode we do a recap of the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) Oceania 2015 conference, which we recently attended in Melbourne. We discuss what ICAS stands for, some of our favourite talks from the conference (we’ll add links to recordings of these talks and all of the talks from this conference here soon), give an overview of some of the critical discussions about the mainstreaming of veganism within capitalism that were a common theme of the conference, and we discuss a question that was raised during the conference – where are the animals in Critical Animal Studies?
We also play Celeste Liddle’s talk on Aboriginal Feminism and Intersectionality. Celeste Liddle is the NTEU National Indigenous organiser and a freelance commentator – be sure to follow her on Twitter @Utopiana and check out her blog: blackfeministranter.blogspot.com.au
