On the Human-Animal Studies front, our program director, Margo DeMello, is going to be traveling a lot this year, participating in conferences, workshops, and events in Portland, Kentucky, Illinois (our third annual ASI-UIUC Summer Institute !), Germany (an exciting project which we will announce later!), Portugal, and Los Angeles. 

We are also collecting new videos for Season 2 of the Defining Human-Animal Studies video series , which we will begin releasing in March. And she is beginning work on a new edition of Animals and Society , her textbook on human-animal studies, whose profits help support ASI’s HAS programs.

Finally, the new issue of Sloth , our journal for undergraduates, will be out soon. Keep your eyes on our website for news about all this and more in the upcoming months!
