Mitsouko sounds like the kind of name that would belong to a goddess. Actually it’s a perfume created by Jacques Guerlain in 1919 which is still on sale in shops today. But more importantly, it’s also the name of Vincent Doyle’s dog.

When I first contacted IE business media and cultural studies professor Vincent Doyle, he suggested that we center on his dog to illustrate his field of research. He’s concerned about how minorities like immigrants, LGBTs, etc., are treated. Apparently, greyhounds like Mitsouko are their own particular kind of minority among abandoned dogs.

It’s always a pleasure to speak with Prof. Doyle, be it about dogs or anything else …
