Bringing together leading scholars and cultural critics, this panel discussion will consider the legal and ethical implications of expanded definitions of personhood. Participants will explore issues tied to animal rights, environmental protections, corporate personhood, reproductive rights, disability, and racial discrimination through specific case studies and cross-disciplinary conversation. Panelists include Adrian Chen, Karla F.C. Holloway, and Kelly Oliver, with Megan Hicks serving as moderator. This panel is part of Anna Craycroft’s exhibition and residency “Motion into Being,” presented during the Department of Education and Public Engagement’s Spring 2018 R&D Season: ANIMATION.


Support for public programs is provided, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
