Here is an admittedly incomplete list of some recent or forthcoming publications that might be of interest to H-Animalistas:

Geoffrey Barstow, Food of Sinful Demons: Meat, Vegetarianism, and the Limits of Buddhism in Tibet (Columbia University Press, 2017): https://cup.columbia.edu/book/food-of-sinful-demons/9780231179966

Mathilde Cohen and Yoriko Otomo, eds., Making Milk: The Past, Present and Future of Our Primary Food (2017, Bloomsbury Academic): https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/making-milk-9781350029965/

Lindgren Johnson, Race Matters, Animal Matters: Fugitive Humanism in African America, 1840-1930  (Routledge, 2018): https://www.routledge.com/Race-Matters-Animal-Matters-Fugitive-Humanism-in-African-America...

[Features chapters by anthropologists, biologists, ecologists, geographers, historians, political scientists, and Sanskrit literature specialists. There is also a post on the OUP blog accompanying the book: https://blog.oup.com/2016/09/human-elephant-relations-south-asia/]

Barbara J. King, Personalities on the Plate: The Lives & Minds of Animals We Eat (University of Chicago Press, 2017): 
http://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/bookCs/book/chicago/P/bo19085093.html

The British Journal of the History of Science has just published a series of articles on animal agency. I am assuming this will be of interest to the list:  https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/bjhs-themes/latest-issue

Robert McKay and John Miller (eds.), Werewolves, Wolves and the Gothic (University of Wales Press, 2017): http://www.uwp.co.uk/book/werewolves-wolves-and-the-gothic-ebook-pdf/

If you have additional announcements, please send them to me at the email below so I can distribute them periodically. If you could include the press, publication date, and a link to the publisher's website for the book that would save me a bit of trouble.

Thanks.
