We are seeking expressions of interest for a new Sociology and Animals thematic group within The Australian Sociological Association. The aim of the group is to create a supportive network of sociologists working in human-animal studies, critical animal studies, or other animal-related areas to facilitate the exchange of ideas and potential future events.
H-Animal aims to serve as an on-line home for scholars across disciplines who are engaged on the study of animals in human culture.
Be sure to check out the new syllabus contributions by Jody Berland, David Herman, Piers Locke, and Michal Pregowski in the Syllabus Exchange!
