Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In July 2009 more than 500 delegates from 23 countries gathered in Newcastle, Australia for the first Minding Animals conference. People from numerous disciplines including biology, psychology, anthropology, and the social sciences and humanities gathered to share ideas and learn more about the complex nature of human-nonhuman animal relationships. The essays in this volume show just how wide-ranging and eclectic we must be as we study the frustrating, paradoxical, and challenging aspects of our interactions with the nonhuman beings with whom we share Earth. For example, how can people who say they love animals go on to harm them "out of love for them?" In the end everyone agreed that each of us could do more to expand our "compassion footprint" to make the world a more peaceful place for humans and other animals. Compassion for animals will make for more compassion among people and that's what we need as we journey into the future.
