Call for Papers: “Animals in Human Societies”

This issue will be co-edited by Dr. John Sorenson (Department of Sociology, Brock University), author of About Canada: Animal Rights and Ape.

Possible topics might include:

-Animal/human bonds and mutual aid
-Representations of animals
-Animal rights and social justice
-Veganism, abolitionism and the rise of “happy meat”
-Normalization of speciesism
-Animal rights and anarchism
