‘There is nothing so powerful in the world as an idea whose time has come, and animal protection is such an idea’.
Hon. Michael Kirby AC, CMG, former Justice, High Court of Australia, 2010
The Animal studies Research Network’s vision is to foster a climate of research excellence in Animal Studies within the Faculty of the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities and to develop and promote the University of Wollongong as a leader in this burgeoning field. Our long-term vision is to achieve positive changes for the lives and wellbeing of non-human animals. The network brings together researchers from diverse disciplines and career stages whose scholarship and practice-led research addresses the many contexts in which such changes need critical and creative consideration.
