Welcome to the Critical Animal Studies Network at Lund University. Critical animal studies (CAS) is a growing interest among students and scholars, reflected in the increasing number of CAS-related courses appearing internationally, as well as a significant expansion in research interests within the field.
Since 2011, CAS has been expanding in both research and education at Lund University. This work has among other things led to the establishment of the award winning and highly sought after course Critical Animal Studies: Animals in Society, Culture and the Media, host a seminar series, research conferences, and are active in building an extensive network of national and international scholars. LUCASN also co-sponsors the open-access journal Politics and Animals.
In February 2016 the Lund University Critical Animal Studies Network was formed with the aim of consolidating these initiatives, and to act as a platform for future work in the field of CAS at Lund University. With that in mind, the goals for this network are centred on education, continued networking and research.
