Episode #0 – Getting Into Anthrozoology: Our Origin Stories

Molly Sumridge Rebecca Madrid Tiamat Warda 14 November 2020 12


Background
share close

In this episode we discuss some of the varied approaches to entering the field of anthrozology and why we find it so fulfilling and engaging to be a part of this community. We also refer to some well-rounded, introductory reading material that we hope will help listeners determine if anthrozoology may also be the perfect fit for them. Those sources are offered below.  

Anthrozoology is a relatively new, interdisciplinary field that focuses on human and nonhuman animal interactions. It can be unclear what exactly anthrozoology entails and how to get into it, so we hope this episode can help.
