Interesting Calls for Papers and Events (plus a nice review!)

We recently had a nice review about our discussion group written by Karen Graham on her blog and in the spirit of mutual advertising here it is!
http://kargraham.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/being-nonhuman-discussion-group-why-we-need-research-groups/

Besides shameless self-promotion, another reason to highlight Karen’s blog is that she tends to post regular updates on any relevant upcoming cfps, several of which seem applicable for those interested in ‘Being Non/Human’.

With this in mind, the rest of this post may run the risk of being redundant. Nevertheless, here are some cfps and events occurring in the UK which may be of interest. Some of the deadlines for the cfps have passed, but the conferences may be worth attending:
