Registration is currently open for a one day workshop on Pain and Animals.
The workshop will be held on March 2nd 2013, and is hosted by Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. Our aim is to better understand the similarities and differences in the pain of humans and non-human animals. Specifically, we will explore the role of pain in non-human animals, whether they are capable of the emotion, evaluation, and anticipation often thought to be related to human pain, and in what ways non-human animals suffer.
The day will be organized around research by presenters:
- Colin Allen (Indiana University: Philosophy and Cognitive Science)
- Victoria Braithwaite (The Pennsylvania State University: Biology)
- Trent Dougherty (Baylor University: Philosophy)
- Jacky Reid and Marian Scott (University of Glasgow: Veterinary Medicine, Pain and Welfare Research Group)
- Adam Shriver (Rotman Institute of Philosophy: Neurophilosophy)
The workshop is part of the larger Pain Project. The Pain Project is an international, interdisciplinary research project focused on relations amongst pain, perception, and emotion, as well as pain in non-human animals. It is part of an overarching research programme, Pain and the Nature of Mind, run by the University of Notre Dame and funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
Registration fee: £30 staff/£20 students (includes tea/coffee)
