The Moving Animals project organizes panel discussion with experts to discuss the need for intellectual traffic between these fields.

Are concepts, methods and approaches from STS of any use for scholars who seek to historicize the lives of animals? And do animal histories have anything on offer for science and technology scholars? Where would cross-fertilizations be useful? And where do the two fields clash?

Clemens Driesen (Wageningen University and Research), Dolly Jørgensen (University of Stavanger), Mieke Roscher (University of Kassel), and Bert Theunissen (Utrecht University) will engage with these questions in dialogue with each other and with the audience.

The discussion will be moderated by Raf de Bont (UM).
