The Animals in Society working group is a collection of researchers and students based at Flinders University in South Australia, along with their affiliates. We are a disciplinary diverse group who research many aspects of human-animal relationships. We do this from conceptually and theoretically varied backgrounds which have in common a compassionate yet critical approach to the study of animals in society.
The purpose of the blog is to promote and encourage ongoing, accessible, dialogue in a public forum. The site is intended to be inclusive and present a wide variety of opinions. As such human-animal studies scholars and students (including those working in aligned fields of critical animal studies and anthrozoology), animal activists and advocates, are encouraged to contact us to discuss guest contributions.
