Esther recently submitted her PhD completed at the University of Wollongong (Dharawal Country) in the School of Humanities and Social Inquiry. Using multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork in Israel-Palestine, her research investigates how Israeli and Palestinians activists negotiate and practice intersectional, human and animal alliances in a settler colonial context. On that basis, her thesis also proposes to further advance conceptualisations of intersectionality in Animal Studies literature. Her work has been published in the Animal Studies Journal, Settler Colonial Studies and the Journal of Intercultural Studies.
Are you new to animal studies research? Do you grapple with current theoretical debates – such as intersectionality and decolonial approaches? Do you wonder how and where to publish? If you would like to understand the basics of the publication process, from pitching an article idea to responding to peer review and get advice on what’s possible when working with non-traditional outputs – such as visual art and creative writing – join us at the master class: Tools for Animal Studies Research.
This interactive online event, presented by the Australasian Animal Studies Association (AASA), is aimed at higher degree and early career researchers interested in animal studies. You will have an opportunity to hear from scholars doing innovative work in the field and ask questions.
