This interdisciplinary conference explores the relationship between animality and religious discourses.


Welcome to the "Polar Bears, Ponies, Pets, and Religion" Conference at The University of Winnipeg! I am very pleased to host leading scholars in a wide variety of disciplines across the humanities to discuss how spirituality, theology, and religious discourses shape what it means to be human in the modern era.
