Welcome to the Volume 2, Issue 2 of HAIB

Dear Human Animal Interaction Bulletin readers,

Welcome to Volume 2, No. 2 of HAIB. We hope you enjoy this latest edition and the variety it represents within the broad field of human-animal interactions. We are pleased to offer four articles ranging in topic from empathy as it relates to chimpanzees to three articles assessing the impact of animals with children in the realms of reading, attention and concentration, and social behaviors. Additionally, we are pleased to present a special book review this edition that discusses fictional literature as a way to inform and generate discourse in the areas of human-animal interaction.

Based on feedback from subscribers and supporters, we are instituting changes to generate more communication with our HAIB friends. These innovations include:

  • Email alerts will be sent to all HAIB subscribers when a new edition is published.
  • Broad outreach to publicize HAIB. To do this we need your help:
    • Please spread the word to interested colleagues or let us know who you think may be interested in hearing about HAIB
    • Get involved with HAIB. We welcome reviewers as well as authors. If you are interested in either one of these possibilities, or have a question, please email me at lori.kogan@colostate.edu.

Enjoy our latest issue!

Thank you,
Lori Kogan, PhD
Editor, HAIB
