We have closed submissions for the next issue but to tweak your interest, here are the themes we suggested for our September 2016 issue:
Our upcoming issue’s theme is Animals: Living together
We invited teachers and students to think about animals and our relationship with them:
• Why is the human species so fascinated with nonhuman species?
• Why do we care more about some animals than others?
• Should some animals be treated better than others?
• What is a pet?
• Do animals deserve the same respect and rights as humans?
• In what sense can we “know” nonhuman animals?
• Can we eat meat and still love animals?
• How do animal lifestyles, habitats, forms of communication, needs reflect and contrast with our own? What does this tell us about them and about ourselves?
Images—whether photographs, drawings, paintings—should be sent as JPEGS (with at least 300 dpi resolution). Written submissions should be sent in Word or Rich Text File formats (as doc, docx, or .rtf). Scholarly articles should confirm to the Chicago Manual of Style for textual and citation manners; please use endnotes rather than footnotes.
