British Animal Studies Network Poetry

Dear BASN Friend

I'm delighted to announce that you can now listen to two more specially commissioned poems by our poet-in-residence Susan Richardson on the website: www.britishanimalstudiesnetwork.org.uk

'Stench' was written for 'Smelling' in 2016; and 'Speaking Seal' for the recent 'Sex' meeting. Susan's poem for 'Hearing' (2017) is also available to, well, hear.

Thanks to Susan for the wonderful poems. Enjoy!
