My research focuses on the relationships between humans and dogs, and, more specifically, on the relationships between humans and dogs within the greyhound racing community of New South Wales. Through ethnography I explore the intersubjectivities between the greyhound and the human, looking at how one party contributes to the construction of the identity of the other. Through my work I hope to foster an understanding of how relationships work within the greyhound racing sphere, and, subsequently, work with the aforementioned community to better practices and policies relating to the greyhounds themselves.
