Publication success for MA Anthrozoology students

MA Anthrozoology students publish on attribution of emotions toward animals in the UK, the dromedary in Australia, queer animals in Ireland, populations at tourism venues in Thailand and trophy animals in high fence hunting spaces in the US.

In just over a year, five MA Anthrozoology students have published articles based on the work they conducted during the MA AZ in high-standard peer-reviewed journals. Many congratulations to Sarah, Lucy, Eimear, Melani and Delphine for this very impressive achievement at this stage of their career:

  • Crowley, S.L. (2014) Camels Out of Place and Time: The Dromedary in Australia. Anthrozoös: A Multidisciplinary Journal of The Interactions of People & Animals, 27, 191–203.
  • Wilkins, A. M., McCrae, L. S. and McBride, E. A. 2015. Factors affecting the attribution of emotions toward animals. Anthrozoös: A Multidisciplinary Journal of The Interactions of People & Animals. 28(3).
  • McLoughlin, E. 2015. #SaveBenjy: Sexuality, Queer Animals, and Ireland. Humanimalia. 7(1)
  • Nardone, M. Forthcoming. Nature on Demand: (Re)construction of the Trophy Animal in High Fence Hunting Spaces. Conference proceedings of ‘The Making Sense of the Animal – Human Bond Project: 2nd Global Meeting’, Oxford.

While working on these publications, these five students have kept quite busy:

  • Sarah Crowley is conducting fieldwork on the social dimensions of wildlife management for her PhD at Exeter

  • Lucy McCrae is now working within an animal welfare charity

  • Eimear McLoughlin is preparing her PhD (Exeter) on visibility and concealment in Denmark slaughterhouses

  • Melani Nardone is preparing her PhD (Exeter) on dog relinquishment in Spain

  • Delphine Ronfot works closely with Thai NGOs and the Thai government to improve welfare standards of shelters and rescue centres including governmental wildlife confiscation facilities.
