The Sheffield Animal Studies Research Centre is please to invite you to a talk by the University of Sheffield’s own Dr Robert McKay.

The talk is a work in progress towards an essay on the meanings and uses of the concept representation, to appear in a book called Critical Terms in Animal Studies. After setting out a range of reasons why the notion of representation is tricky and important for the field, Dr McKay looks to argue that implicit tensions amongst various vexed senses of representation  — as making present again by standing for, as advocacy and as portrayal — is particularly significant.

The talk is due to take place at 4pm, Tuesday 14th February in the Hicks Building, room HI-LTD. We look forward to welcoming you.
