Hybrid Workshop, University of Liverpool, 15th June 2023
Streets are lively more-than-human spaces. Dogs, cats, monkeys, rats, cows, and pigeons are amongst those animals who share streets with humans. In different places and at different times, animals are variously welcomed, tolerated, or prohibited from streets. Street animals raise a host of questions around urban life and public health, as well as who belongs and who deserves care in urban environments. They are sometimes framed as evidence of healthy urban environments and sometimes as obstacles to urban health.
