British Academy Conference on Veterinary Expertise

Staff in the School of Sociology and Social Policy are delighted to announce that booking is now open to attend an online conference, hosted by British Academy and funded by Wellcome Trust. The online conference will be held in July 2022 and is entitled ‘Constructing and contesting veterinary expertise: professionals, publics, and prospects’. The event is convened by Professor Pru Hobson-West and Dr Alistair Anderson (SSP) and Professor Kate Millar (School of Biosciences), and includes a wide range of national and international speakers.

The aim of the event is to explore the evolution and contemporary significance of veterinary expertise, discuss how this knowledge becomes contested, and identify ethical challenges. The convenors warmly invite an audience of scholars and practitioners from all disciplines, including those inside and outside the Faculty of Social Science. Ticket prices are just £10 per day, with concessions available. More information, programme schedules, and booking is via the conference website.
