    Are People More Disturbed by Dog or Human Suffering? Influence of Victim's Species and Age.Jack Levin, Arnold Arluke & Leslie Irvine - 2017 - Society and Animals 25 (1):1-16.
    This research examines whether people are more emotionally disturbed by reports of non-human animal than human suffering or abuse. Two hundred and fifty-six undergraduates at a major northeastern university were asked to indicate their degree of empathy for a brutally beaten human adult or child versus an adult dog or puppy, as described in a fictitious news report. We hypothesized that the vulnerability of victims—determined by their age and not species—would determine participants’ levels of distress and concern for them. The (...)

  2. Animal Problems/People Skills: Emotional and Interactional Strategies in Humane Education.Leslie Irvine - 2002 - Society and Animals 10 (1):63-91.
    Recent changes in the organizational culture of nonhuman animal sheltering, coupled with attitudes that are more progressive toward companion animals, have made shelters into resources rather than last resorts. Consequently, shelter workers need the "people skills" to communicate to a public that urgently needs accurate information about animal behavior and training. This poses a difficulty for workers drawn to working with animals but who find themselves working with people. Based on participant observation and informed by social psychology and the sociology (...)

    Reproducing Dominion: Emotional Apprenticeship in the 4-H Youth Livestock Program.Colter Ellis & Leslie Irvine - 2010 - Society and Animals 18 (1):21-39.
    This paper examines young people’s socialization into the doctrine known as “dominionism,” which justifies the use of animals in the service of human beings. Using qualitative research, it focuses on the 4-H youth livestock program, in which boys and girls raise cattle, pigs, goats, and sheep for slaughter. The analysis portrays 4-H as an apprenticeship in which children learn to do cognitive emotion work, use distancing mechanisms, and create a “redemption” narrative to cope with contradictory ethical and emotional experiences. Although (...)
