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, 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 investigate a question that was raised during the conference – where are the animals in Critical Animal Studies?

We 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:

We mention our talks from the conference, Katie’s talk ‘Getting Trigger Happy With Trigger Warnings. Mental Health, (dis)ability And Activism‘ – played on episode 131 and Nick’s, ‘Veganarchism‘ – played on episode 134. We also discuss some of our favourite talks from the conference including:
