Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I believe that our collective scholarship is poised to reach a tipping point where we will generate studies and theories which will attract many from well outside our traditional ranks. However ... we must also remember that one strategy to bring about this critical mass of scholarship is through bringing additional attention to our field, which involves maintaining a sustained presence in ASA. To pursue this goal please encourage your friends, colleagues, graduate students, and companion animals (why not?) to join or rejoin our section.

Many thanks,

Brian Lowe

You must be a member of the ASA to join the section. You can join the ASA or renew your membership online. Whether you renew electronically or through the mail, please remember to renew your membership in the section on Animals & Society at the same time. Remember that section members are eligible for a 25% discount on subscriptions to the journal "Society & Animals."

Dues are only $10.00 for regular and low-income and $5.00 for student members. Please encourage a friend, student, or associate to join us, too! Our younger and future members of the discipline seem especially aware of the many issues and concerns that arise within this subject area, and so we hope that their mentors will make them aware that this forum exists-- and perhaps even sponsor a student's membership.

For more information, contact the section's President: Brian Lowe.

Thank you for your continued support,

Angela Mertig
Chair, Membership Committee
