Faculty, students, and alumni from the anthrozoology master’s program held a meet-up on Zoom to get together, socialize and talk about human-animal relationships during the quarantine. Twenty-four participants showed up, representing students from the first cohort (2010-2011) all the way up to current students. There were attendees across four different time zones and plenty of students and alumni who wanted to attend but could not for various reasons. It was a great opportunity to reconnect during these precarious times and to talk about current events that are impacting people’s studies, research, and careers.
