Visual Anthrozoology studies the ways in which visual culture and human-animal studies intersect. This panel, consisting of three internationally renowned experts in the field, will discuss working with animals and their likenesses in an artistic practice, the contemporary and historical impact of photography and zoos, animals in social media and the news, among other related topics.

Dear Community,

Thank you for joining last night’s Zoom event, Visual Anthrozoology, hosted by Pratt’s Photography Department. We regret that the event was cancelled halfway through the program due to a Zoom-bomb containing disturbing and offensive language and imagery that the school does not condone. While the event was taking place, and before the attack, it was an extraordinary and fascinating conversation, it was all that we had hoped and planned for and everything educational institutions seek to uphold, the freedom to express ideas and intellectual thought in an academic environment. 

We are deeply saddened that this happened to our community and by the pain that it has caused, and we look forward to being back in touch shortly with information about rescheduling the remainder of the event.

Sincerely,
The Pratt Photography Department
