We speak in the name of animals. We kill in the name of pleasure. We think in the name of animals. We subdue the earth in the name of gods. We make them suffer in the name of science. We fight in the name of animals. We abuse in the name of profit. Therefore, we organize a conference - to think, to discuss, to exchange.

- representation of non-human animals in literature, film, music and art;

- the fight for non-human animal rights and other emancipation struggles

- vegetarianism/veganism – why, in the name of whom and what

- the construction of humanity and animality

- representation of non-human animals in law

- non-human animal lawsuit

- what do we put in the mouths of non-human animals?

- what it means to have a pet?

- capitalism - an enemy or an ally of vegetarianism/veganism

- non-human animals’ representation on the internet

- non-human animals - beasts or sweeties?

- which non-human animal should I call you to offend you?
