British Animal Studies Network

Project: Internally funded project

Description

The British Animal Studies Network is a meeting point for people - within and outside of academia - who are working in the field of animal studies. It emerged out of a recognition that a growing number of scholars were working on issues concerning human-animal relations from a number of different humanities and social sciences disciplines and from a number of different institutions within the UK and beyond, and that a place to meet that crossed disciplinary boundaries would develop ideas in the field.
