Ann Marie Thornburg is a Ph.D. student in the department of Anthropology at University of Notre Dame and works at the Centre for Imaginative Ethnography. She was given a grant to help stage “The Poetic Animal,” an innovative multimedia poetry exhibition to incorporate the written word and visual arts to celebrate animals and the human–animal bond and foster compassion among attendees. An accompanying anthology was to offer a deeper exploration of these themes.
