Episode 2

May 24-26th, 2022 International Research Symposium on Animal Communication,
with Barbara & Avantika, your Podcast Hosts


Animal communication is an emerging area of research, and we just so happen to have front row seats to it! We are both involved with some fascinating research that's happening at the University of Saskatchewan's School of Environment and Sustainability (in Canada) that's exploring the phenomenon of "intuitive interspecies communication."

On May 24th, 25th and 26th, 2022, there is a virtual event taking place that you are all invited to, called the International Multispecies Methods Research Symposium. The event aims to:

  • Embark on a scholarly exploration and deeper understanding of intuitive interspecies communication (IIC) as practiced by animal communicators (an emerging multispecies method);

  • Catalyze novel partnerships and grow an international network of IIC research;

  • Develop new research questions, directions, teams, discussion groups across diverse areas of inquiry and disciplines.

This event will be of interest to those who are seeking to more deeply understand animals and are interested in learning more about intuitive interspecies communication and emerging research in this area. The event takes place over the course of 3 days at different timings (more info and schedule available on the website), and will include keynote presentations, sample animal communication consults, group discussions with attendees on various topics, and networking opportunities with researchers, animal communicators and symposium participants. 

Some very well-respected and world-renowned individuals will be presenting at the event, including:

  • Penelope Smith

  • Cara Gubbins

  • Rosalyn Berne

  • Maia Kincaid 

  • Wynter Worsthorne
