Additionally, I am co-founder of the Leeds Animal Studies Network, and co-editor of EPIZOOTICS!an online journal for ecopoetry and posthuman aesthetics.

This public engagement event was generously co-sponsored by the ICPS, the British Society for Literature and Science (BSLS), International Writers at Leeds (IWAL) and the School of English.
