Section on Animals and Society


We seek submissions for the Fall and Spring issues of the Section on Animals & Society Newsletter. We welcome short articles of 500-750 words on topics related to animals and society, including recently published works, scholarship in progress, teaching ideas, and calls/announcements. Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit. Feel free to contact us if you have an idea for something you would like to write about or see in the newsletter. Please direct all submissions and inquiries to Casey Riordan at 

The Animals & Society Section Newsletter is an excellent resource for members hoping to keep up-to-date on section activities and upcoming events, as well as learn more about the exciting research and teaching of section members. Please consider submitting news, publication information, conference and journal submission opportunities, or other relevant information on human-animal studies.
