Animals are increasingly at the forefront of research questions – not as shadows to human stories, or as beings we want to understand biologically, or for purely our benefit – but as beings who have histories, stories, and geographies of their own. I (Claudia) talk to animal studies scholars about some of the most important concepts emerging in animal studies.
Each season is set around a particular theme so that the ways in which these different concepts hang together (or not) become more apparent, allowing for deeper reflection and consideration not only about animals but about the broader fields in which they are now being considered. To that end, each season finishes with a Grad Review to help tie some themes together and identify potential points of divergence.
I am learning a lot through making this podcast but I find that together with doing a PhD and needing to take on work to pay the bills, I simply don't have enough time to create more content. I am currently creating two seasons a year but I would like to increase that as well as deepen my other supports. I'm hoping Buy Me A Coffee will help me to do that.
