The 2015 Speaker Series will open with a talk by sociologist Michal Pregowski, who will be giving a talk titled "The greatest and most beloved: what pet cemeteries tell us about us and our relationships with animals."

Michal Piotr Pregowski received his PhD in Sociology from the University of Warsaw in Poland in 2008, and works as an assistant professor at the Warsaw University of Technology. He is a Fulbright grantee in the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence program and a visiting professor at Eastern Kentucky University's animal studies program, where he is teaching and conducting research for the academic year 2014/2015.

His academic specialties are the sociology of norms and values and human-animal studies. Michal's current research projects include the social construction of dogs in the contemporary West, especially their naming and training, as well as social practices of commemorating companion animals. His recent co-authored book, Pies tez czlowiek? Relacje psow i ludzi we wspolczesnej Polsce (2014), is a collection of articles on humans and canines in contemporary Poland. Michal is a member of the Animals and Society Institute and the International Society for Anthrozoology.
