Professor Hessler’s article makes SSRN top-10 lists!

February 05, 2018

Congratulations to CALS Professor Kathy Hessler, whose Introduction in the most recent issue of Animal Law was named by the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) as one of its top-ten most popular downloads in the past 12 months in each of the areas of: Human-Animal Studies, Animal Law eJournal, and Other Political Anthropology! 

Professor Hessler’s Introduction, “Animal Law in a Changing (and Challenging) Political Climate: One Professor’s Musings After 100 Days of the Trump Administration,” discusses the current political climate following the presidential inauguration of Donald J. Trump, with a focus on Trump’s first 100 days in office and what his actions entail for animal advocates as well as for the field of animal law. The Introduction approaches the Trump presidency through a historical and practical lens, then scrutinizes the Trump administration’s actions through its first 100 days. Following this analysis, the Introduction turns to the considerable number of voices that have risen in response to the President’s initiatives and to those of his party. This Introduction concludes by emphasizing the need for diligence and by proposing avenues for animal advocates to continue fostering change.
