Humans and their Non-Humans

We will look at the curious and changing relationship people have with their pets. Why do love our pets as much as we do? Are human-pet relations mutually beneficial? What can biological and sociological research tell us about the human-pet relationship?

The event will be chaired by Professor Claire Molloy, Director of the Centre for Human Animal Studies, Edge Hill University. Our expert speakers for the evening will be:

Dr John Bradshaw, Visiting Fellow at the School of Veterinary Science, University of Bristol

Professor Nickie Charles, Professor and Director of the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender, University of Warwick

Professor Daniel Mills, Professor of Veterinary Behavioural Medicine, University of Lincoln.

The panel of researchers will discuss current knowledge and their research about the human-pet relationship. They will answer questions about this fascinating aspect of the social world as we explore and celebrate this peculiar aspect of being human.

The event is part of the Being Human festival which takes place from 12 – 22 November 2015
