You are invited to attend an intensive course by zoosemiotician Filip Jaroš (University of Hradec Králové. CZ). During the two-day course students will be presented with novel zoosemiotic models of human-animal communication and their applications in case studies (urban cats, laboratory chimpanzees). The participants achieve a deeper understanding of the differences between animals living in natural and urban environments, the domestication process and also the semiotic theory underlying research on human-animal communication.
The course consists of two lectures and a seminar.
