Welcome to the Australasian Animal Studies Association website

The Australasian Animal Studies Association (AASA) was formed in 2005 by a group working in the emergent field of Animal Studies (alternatively Human Animal Studies).

The AASA is active in organising and sponsoring seminars, symposiums and research workshops and has to date hosted eight large conferences AASA2019 ‘Decolonizing Animals’ was hosted by the New Zealand Centre for Human-Animal Studies at the University of Canterbury, NZ.

In the last few years, the AASA has grown considerably and our members are testament to the dynamism of the field and the research and new thinking it is producing.   Members of the AASA receive a bi-monthly e-bulletin Animail featuring book reviews, member profiles and animal studies news.   You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter
