The Australasian Animal Studies Association (AASA) is launching a new suite of prizes to recognise, celebrate and reward scholars in the emerging interdisciplinary field of Animal Studies.
The prize is made possible by a gift from Animal Studies scholar and AASA foundation member, Associate Professor Siobhan O’Sullivan, UNSW Sydney.
Associate Professor O’Sullivan says that ‘rewarding and celebrating the work of Animal Studies scholars is central to shoring up the interdisciplinary field’.
‘My own research suggests that many Animal Studies scholars feel isolated and unappreciated within their own institution. These prizes are a way of recognising excellence while also giving new scholars a sense of achievement and community’.
The 2021 Prizes are:
