Mariam Motamedi-Fraser BA (Hons), PhD

My research interests lie broadly in the theoretical, methodological and political/ethical implications of recent developments in the animal sciences for social science thinking and vice versa. I am currently writing a book, provisionally titled Dog Politics: Species Stories in the Animal Sciences. I teach two modules: Thinking Animals, at undergraduate level, and The Ethics and Politics of Animals, at Masters level. This is a core course on the MA Ecology, Culture, and Society. I live with Monk, a black Lab, who also co-teaches with me (in his own way). I am co-supervising, with Professor Les Back, Lisa Rabanal's thesis on 'The lives and deaths of South London Staffies,' and am mentor to ESRC postdoctoral fellow Dr. Maisie Tomlinson, who is working on 'Un(Knowing) Animals: Critical Anthropomorphism in theory, method and practice.' I am currently undertaking an ABTC-accredited Advanced Diploma in Animal Science (Canine).
