Congratulations to AASA Committee Member Emily Major who was awarded a Culture & Animals Foundation Grant for Research.
Emily Major is a PhD Candidate in Human-Animal Studies at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. She received a grant for “Framing Possums: Observations of Conservation Education in Aotearoa New Zealand and Potential for Compassionate Conservation.” This project looks at the brushtail possum in Aotearoa New Zealand and how they are framed as a “pest.” Her research consists of observational fieldwork, semi-structured interviews, and textual analysis of mainstream “possum-as-pest” narratives.We are happy to announce our 2021 grantees! We have chosen 17 applicants working on diverse projects from ten countries. We will be sharing more about each project over the next few weeks and you can also learn more about them here: https://www.cultureandanimals.org/grants/grantees/#2021. Thank you so much to everyone who applied, this was not an easy choice as we received the most applications ever. Your hard work and dedication is crucial to animals everywhere and is an inspiration to our foundation. ... See MoreSee Less
