Call for Submissions: 2023 International Multispecies Methods Research Symposium

International Multispecies Methods Research Symposium: Intuitive Interspecies Communication (2023)

Expression of Interest Deadline: January 20, 2023
Final Artistic Submissions Due: March 30, 2023
Symposium Dates: May 8 – 12, 2023 (2-5hr/day, online)

The International Multispecies Methods Research Symposium invites submissions for artistic works in any media which explore themes related to Intuitive Interspecies Communication.

The precarity of this time demands a radical shift in human activity and reorientation toward the bio-systems that sustain us. Many individuals from all walks of life are recognizing that they can communicate with the natural world and are using these skills to reorient relations and solve practical problems. We refer to this interspecies engagement as intuitive interspecies communication (IIC): the exchange of information between humans and other animals without the need for cues normally associated with communication (e.g. sound, sight, smell, etc.). Artistic works with direct connections to IIC will be assessed for display in an online digital exhibition.

For more information and to submit, please visit the Symposium Website.
