The conference will be hosted by the New Zealand Centre for Human-Animal Studies / Te Puna Akoranga o Aotearoa mō te Tangata me te Kararehe. All sessions will take place at The Piano Centre for Music and the Arts, a beautiful new meeting space located right in the centre of the regenerating Christchurch City.

Colonial politics and histories have shaped, and continue to shape, the contemporary worlds of humans and other animals. Languages, societies, cultures, species, landforms, ecosystems, waterways and climates all bear the marks of human imperialism, settlement, invasion, migration, translocation, globalization, colonialism and neocolonialism. What would it mean for humans to decolonize their relationships with each other and with other species? Could we ever become decolonizing animals?
