School of Oriental and African Studies, London
[Room B 104]
Saturday 22 June 2019 – 10.00am to 6.00pm
Open to the general public

You are invited to attend the second SOAS Elephant Conference, which will be
held at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London on Saturday 22 June 2019.

The conference will address all aspects of elephant culture, past, present and future and in all continents. It will deal with both material and cultural concerns, and will cover both the Indian and the African elephant.

This conference builds on previous conferencing activities mobilised at the School of Oriental and African Studies [SOAS, University of London]. We have built a “stable” of quadruped conferences, including mules, donkeys, camels, and war horses, and notably our very successful 2016 elephant conference in Bangalore.

The outcome of this work has been the establishment of vibrant international research networks, with programmes of ongoing work. This year those activities will be taking shape as the “Interdisciplinary Animal Studies Initiative at SOAS” [IASI].

ADMISSION to the conference is open to the general public, and is free. However you are asked to register in advance by writing to the conference organiser at this address:
