The Lives of Animals Research Group

The Lives of Animals Research Group at York University (previously at Queen's University 2015-2018 and University of Guelph until 2014) focuses on animal-human relations. Our objective is to explore the complex encounters between animals and humans within broader political, economic, social, cultural, spatial, environmental, and ethical contexts. We embrace interdisciplinary and action-oriented research to inform scholarly and policy realms, and to enhance the lives of animals, and humans, as a result.
