||My fieldwork has been working with Hokkaido dairy farmers and walking with Osaka dog owners. When humans and dogs are walking together, who is walking who? This leads to the main theoretical themes of my research; embodiment and affect. My interest is in human, animal, technology relationships. I am curious about what ethical and moral issues arise in these relationships? For example, animal and human relationships on contemporary dairy farms are rapidly changing because of new technologies; in Japan pets now outnumber human children under the age of 15.
