In May and June of 2016 I travelled to Guam and Rota in the Mariana Islands on a research trip. My focus was the critically endangered aga or Mariana Crow (Corus kubaryi). During the trip I took photos of a range of related things. A few of them are included below.
As my time in Munich is coming to an end I thought I’d share a few photos and an audio clip of the fantastic corvid activity in the courtyard behind the apartment we’ve been staying in.
This blog post is the text of a discussant paper that I was delighted to deliver at the 2015 meeting of the American Anthropological Association in a panel called Gaia Strikes Back: Feral Landscapes of the Anthropocene.
This post was co-authored with Emily O’Gorman. It is the text from a short paper that we delivered at the 2015 Forum of the Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales: Animals on the Table.
Earlier this week I chaired and introduced a panel at the 2015 Forum of the Council of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS) in Melbourne. The panel was put together by my colleague Matthew Kearnes and I and focused on environmental humanities approaches to agricultural landscapes. We had three fabulous speakers: Lauren Rickards (RMIT University), Cameron Muir (ANU) and Aidan Davison (UTas).
Over the past few months my colleagues and I in the Environmental Humanities Program at UNSW have been developing a MOOC. For those of you not yet caught up in this global trend, a MOOC is a “massive open online course.” Basically, they’re interactive courses set up online so that people anywhere can do them.
