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 The dates for AASA2021 have been announced: 30 November – 2 December.  The conference will be online – further details and the call for papers will be announced soon. 

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
