There were some amazing keynotes at the Nonhuman Turn Conference this past May at the Center for 21st Century Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Most of them were streamed live and the video was recorded. If you missed it, you can see each of the keynotes below. As well, I have linked to the wonderful summaries Adrian Ivakiv wrote for each talk on his blog.
