Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the Animals & Society Institute’s September 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. A new HAS doctoral program and HAS articles in widely disparate journals show that both the discipline itself and the scholarly focus on human-nonhuman animal relationships continue to expand in exciting ways. Your ongoing support of ASI and our Human-Animal Studies efforts continue to enable us to make these impacts.

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