Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the Animals & Society Institute’s Human-Animal Studies Report. This month’s Report has a bit for everyone.

We at ASI are heartened to see our decades of work into The Link between animal abuse and human violence gaining significant public policy traction with bills concerning the evaluation and treatment for people who abuse animals progressing in two US state legislatures. We are also pleased to see our Animals & Society Colloquium Series—a collaboration with the American Sociological Association’s Animals & Society Section—well attended and growing. The series serves as a means of not only giving voice to new and established HAS scholars, but also bringing research to the broader general public interested in HAS issues.

For more information, including Open Access chapters, news, funding opportunities, and much more, view this month’s Report here.
