Resources for Students
The Animals & Society Institute has developed resources for students who are interested in or are already a part of the human-animal studies field. The links below will lead you to resources like our human-animal studies degree and certificate program repository, the ASI-UIUC Summer Institute, and our Defining Human-Animal Studies video series and more.
ASI/A&S Colloquium and Webinars Series
ASI and the Animals & Society section of the American Sociological Association co-sponsor this series which is dedicated to highlighting research by emerging human-animal relationship scholars. This series also features publication workshops, job talks, and research by established scholars in the field.

Human-Animal Studies scholars come from such diverse fields and often times students have a difficult time reading work from other disciplines. To help in this area, the Animals & Society Institute invited scholars to define, in 3-minute long videos, terms that are used within their realm of human-animal studies, but that may be unfamiliar to those outside of their sub-disciplines.
The Animals & Society Institute and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have, since 2017, co-hosted a new Human-Animal Studies Summer Institute program for advanced graduate students and early career scholars pursuing research in Human-Animal Studies.Click the link below to find out more.
The Animals & Society Institute Digital Archive is a searchable archive that contains much of ASI’s published material. Note that some files are accessible only by ASI Members while others are Open Access.
