Legislative Policy Fellowship (Harvard Animal Law & Policy Program)

Harvard Law School’s Animal Law & Policy Program is inviting applications for a four-month Fellowship to examine policy implications of proposed and potential legislation seeking to prevent U.S. states from regulating the in-state sale of “agricultural products” produced outside state borders.

The Fellowship will provide an opportunity for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on an issue that furthers the mission of the Animal Law & Policy Program.

Query: Emu War in Australia

Colleagues: I am writing for a student in the U.S. who would like to do an undergraduate research paper on the Emu War in Australia in 1932. We have found very few sources on the incident, so I have suggested that she consider using the war as an illustration or gateway into historical wildlife management. However, we are still at an impasse as to what sources are readily available on Australia. My expertise is Latin American so any suggestions you have would be most welcome!  
If you would prefer to write off list, my email is: wilcox@nku.edu
