The International Society for Anthrozoology (ISAZ) is excited to announce that its 27th International conference, "Animals in Our Lives: Multidisciplinary Approaches to the Study of Human–Animal Interactions" will be held from 2 to 5 July, 2018 in Sydney, Australia.

Critical reviews are also welcome.
