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 six large conferences.  We are pleased to announce that the next AASA conference  ‘Animal Intersections’ will be hosted by the University of Adelaide, 3-5 July 2017 – click here for information about CFP & Exhibition EOI, and Travel Scholarships available from the AASA.

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