Presenter Bio :

Tiamat Warda is currently a PhD candidate in Anthrozoology at the University of Exeter, part of the Exeter Anthrozoology as Symbiotic Ethics (EASE) working group, and a Junior Fellow for the Global Research Network’s Animals and Biodiversity Think Tank programme. After working as a guide dog instructor for six years, Tiamat received an MA in Anthrozoology from the University of Exeter in 2019. Her PhD thesis defines humane emotional labour in relationships between guide dogs and their instructors during their shared work-lives. It contributes to anthrozoological research as a form of interspecies solidarity and supports a movement toward humane jobs. Tiamat’s research interests include interspecies collaboration and assistance, animal labour studies, and care work. 

Presentation information:

To carry out their work, assistance dogs need to manage their emotions to remain collected and professional in a wide range of scenarios. In other words, they perform high and consistent levels of emotional labour. Emotional labour is the management of feelings to present appropriate and expected emotions in formal work-related interactions. Considering the importance of emotional labour to the work of assistance dogs, understanding it is central to discussing and improving an assistance dog’s emotional life and well-being. This webinar offers a holistic understanding of humane interspecies emotional labour. While performing emotional labour can be humane and enjoyable, some practices can be detrimental to an assistance dog’s emotional well-being. Therefore, following a presentation of the concept of humane interspecies emotional labour, this webinar discusses potential approaches to increase discourse of and support for it within both in academia and industry.
