This episode of Knowing Animals comes to you from New York University. I am joined by a very special guest, Professor Una Chaudhuri, Professor of English, Drama and Environmental Studies. We discuss her co-edited book 'Animal Acts: Performing Species Today’ which was published by the University of Michigan in 2014.

This episode of Knowing Animals is brought to you AASA. AASA is the Australasian Animal Studies Association. Information about its 2017 conference is out now. Get involved. It will be fantastic!

This episode of Knowing Animals comes to you from the US where I am attending the Fellow Travellers conference organised by today's guest, Lori Gruen, and the Animals & Society Institute. 

In today's episode I speak to philosopher Prof. Lori Gruen about her book Entangled Empathy: An Alternative Ethic for Our Relationships with Animals which was published by Lantern in 2015.

This episode is brought to you by the nice people at AASA. AASA is Australia's Animal Studies Association. Learn more about AASA here: https://www.facebook.com/AASA-Australasian-Animal-Studies-Association-480316142116752/?fref=ts.

Please forgive the sound. The equipment isn't working so well in the US.

Once again I come to you from the Fellow Travellers conference in the US. This time I speak to psychologist and founder of the Animals & Society Institute, as well as the journal Society & Animals, Ken Shapiro. We discuss his 2015 article ‘“I am a Vegetarian”: Reflections on a Way of Being’.

Again the sound quality is not great. My sound equipment got damaged on the flight from Australia to the US. I am crying into my laptop as I type this message. Please be patient and kind. 

This episode is brought to you by our friends at the Australasian Animal Studies Association. AASA works for Animal Studies scholars. I'm a member. You should be a member also. Join today!
