The latest issue of the Animal Studies Journal is out, and the theme is 'Flourish' - “For this special issue of Animal Studies Journal, entitled ‘Flourish’, our approach was two-fold. Complementing the 2021 conference of the Australasian Animal Studies Association on animal flourishing, we encouraged papers that explored animal and human-animal communities that are thriving and flourishing, both in the general sense and in terms of flourishing theory. A second area of interest was in works that offer or address creative and non-traditional outputs. The issue opens with papers in these two categories, followed by additional general papers and concluding with a selection of reviews of recent works in the field of animal studies.” Extract from the Editorial. https://animalstudies.org.au/animal-studies-journal ...
