The world is in crisis: socially, politically, environmentally. We are increasingly confronted with notions of otherness as the world is shrinking – we interact with diverse cultures, ideas, agendas as we never have before. Yet, at the same time, we are increasingly polarized in our thinking, with the rise of a global right-wing agenda challenging a progressive wave of policies the world over. Yet, these crises seem to pale in consideration of the increasingly urgent climate crisis.
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.

Keynote Speakers for The Animal Gaze Constructed (2020)
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is seeking applications for the KHS research fellowship program for the fall 2019 cycle. The program provides funding for academic researchers, including doctoral students, whose projects focus on Kentucky or larger regional-related topics. Time periods are open - researchers have used the Kentucky Historical Society's archival holdings to shed light on a vast array of topics, including resistance and slavery, medical history and addiction, and equine history and agriculture.
