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.
My new book, Flight Ways, is now out. You can read more about the book here.
It is available for sale from all of the big online book sellers and even in the odd bookshop.
I participated in this fascinating radio documentary on de-extinction and the resurrection of extinct species. The program includes a range of scientists and a little bit of historical and philosophical input. It is an engaging listen.
