Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics
Isa will be giving a talk about her work in July at the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics Summer School held at the University of Oxford. In addition, her Elderly Animals images will be used to illustrate the Summer School program and other promotional materials for the conference. The Summer School is an annual interdisciplinary academic conference organized by the OCAE that each year explores in depth a different topic relating to animal ethics. This year’s session will explore the ethics of eating animals.
University of Chicago Press
Isa is ecstatic to announce that she will be publishing a book of her Elderly Animals work with the University of Chicago Press. In her Facebook post announcing the book deal, Isa states: “For many years, I’ve admired the books that U of C has produced (including, recently, Rachel Sussman’s “The Oldest Living Things in the World” and numerous animal-studies titles like Barbara King’s “How Animals Grieve”). I respect the Press’ ability to create high-quality books that are both critically acclaimed and embraced by wide audiences. I feel very fortunate to be working with editor Christie Henry and the rest of the U of C team on my first book.” The book is slated to be released in Spring 2018.
