Inspired by a recent meeting of the European Association for Critical Animal Studies (EACAS) in Barcelona, Vasile Stanescu (Mercer University) and I have founding a sister society, the North American Association for Critical Animal Studies (NAACAS). While EACAS meets in alternating (odd) years, NAACAS will meet in alternating (even) years, with our first meeting taking place in May 2020 in Kelowna, B.C., hosted by Critical Animal Studies scholar, feminist criminologist, and sociologist of food Kelly Struthers Montford (University of British Columbia Okanagan). Information on NAACAS is now available here: NAACAS can be contacted at
