Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the Animals & Society Institute’s monthly Human-Animal Studies Report.

Summer is always a time when we regroup, reset, and let our hair down a bit. Most faculty and students take (at least somewhat of) a breather, vacations abound, and things generally move just a bit slower.

That doesn’t, however, mean everything stops in the field of Human-Animal Studies. Whether you are kicking back, catching up, or looking for new projects, we think you’ll find something of interest to read, view, or listen to in this month’s HAS Report.

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

As you can see, ASI is promoting a tremendous amount of activity in the field of Human-Animal Studies. We always invite your input and participation. Please send your comments, suggestions, and submissions to:, and if possible include a URL link to your project or announcement.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our Human-Animal Studies efforts. Stay healthy and safe, and do what you can to protect those you can.

Have a great summer!
