Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the Animals & Society Institute’s May Human-Animal Studies Report. It is always heartening to see growth in the field of Human-Animal Studies (HAS), and this month doesn’t disappoint.

We are delighted to invite you to a special online colloquium commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Animals & Society Institute, a milestone we couldn’t have reached without your invaluable support. You’ll hear from some of us here at ASI and two featured guest speakers: Dr. Erica Fudge and Zane McNeill. This webinar is not just a celebration of our past achievements but also a call to action for the future. Together, let’s celebrate and continue striving for a world where we advance and share knowledge to improve human and nonhuman animal lives. The event takes place Thursday, June 20, 11:00am – 12:30pm US ET. Find out more and register here!
