The Ethics of Fur

23 – 26 July, 2017, at St Stephen’s House, Oxford

in partnership with Respect for Animals

Every year more than 60 million animals are killed and sold by the international fur industry. It represents one of the largest uses of animals today. This Summer School will examine the ethics of the treatment of animals killed for their fur worldwide, including trapping, hunting, killing, and “farming” of animals. We shall also consider the use of animal fur products in fashion worldwide.

Papers are invited from academics worldwide on any aspect relating to the ethics of fur, including philosophical and religious ethics, historical, anthropological, legal, psychological, scientific, and sociological perspectives. Potential topics include: the nature of animal suffering in fur production, the international trade in animal fur, methods of killing, the environmental consequences of the international fur industry, the use of fur in fashion, the role of international business, the media promotion of fur, changing legislation, especially in the European Union, and strategies for change.

Application

Abstracts of proposed contributions (no more than 300 words) should be sent to Clair Linzey via email: depdirector@oxfordanimalethics.com.

The deadline for abstracts is 1 January, 2017. Accepted papers will be considered for publication in a subsequent book volume or in the Journal of Animal Ethics.
