Here’s the mark of a true, geeky academic: When you discover not one, but TWO, really amazing journals, which are surprisingly accessible. And you find yourself positively delirious with excitement over words, plain old *boring* words on the page. Such that you simply cannot stop reading them. Have spent the better part of my “work” time so far reading full text articles from Society and Animals . My favorites so far?:
• “Anthropomorphism and Anthropomorphic Selection—Beyond the ‘Cute Response'”
• “Toward a Non-Speciesist Psychoethic”
• “Crossover Animal Fantasy Series: Crossing Cultural and Species as Well as Age Boundaries”
Yup. Total geek.
