Researching Animal Research Conference

Date: 30/03/2023

Wellcome Collection, London




30 – 31st March 2023


The Animal Research Nexus project is hosting a programme closing conference entitled Researching Animal Research. The conference marks the formal completion of the Animal Research Nexus programme (2017-2023), and will run from the 30th – 31st of March at the Wellcome Collection in London.

This will be an opportunity for us to renew connections, celebrate collaborations, critically review what we and others have accomplished in this field, as well as explore new challenges and open up discussion about the future.


The meeting will include a session on “Emerging Voices in the social study of animal research“.  

For this session, they are inviting social science and humanities scholars to propose a paper. They are looking for fresh ideas, new faces and innovative, diverse approaches to the social study of animal research, in all its many aspects and applications. Papers from early career scholars are particularly encouraged. Presenters will be given 20 minutes to present their work, to be followed by a Q & A session.

If you wish to be involved, please send a 200 word abstract describing your proposed paper to before the 31st August 2022. Additionally, they also have room allocated in our exhibition for posters. Please contact the organisers if you are interested in presenting a poster.

If your paper is accepted you will be invited to attend the whole conference in person in London. They have a number of bursaries available for those who may need assistance in covering the costs of attendance.
