Deborah Bird Rose is Professor of Social Inclusion in the Centre for Research on Social Inclusion, Macquarie University, a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, and a foundation member of Ecological Humanities (www.ecologicalhumanities.org). Her current research focuses on multi-sited, multispecies ethnographies in zones of extinction. She is the author of several prize-winning books, including the recently re-released ethnography Dingo Makes Us Human (Cambridge University Press, 2009) and Reports from a Wild Country: Ethics for Decolonisation (UNSW Press, 2004). She has worked with Aboriginal people in their claims to land and in other decolonising contexts, and in both scholarly and practical arenas her work is focused on the convergence of social and ecological justice. Her work is interdisciplinary; she writes across fields that include anthropology, cultural studies, history, philosophy, religious studies and geography. With Thom van Dooren she co-edits the Ecological Humanities section of the Australian Humanities Review, and she serves on the Editorial Board of that and other journals. Her most recent book is Wild Dog Dreaming: Love and Extinction, published by University of Virginia Press (2011) in their series ‘Under the Sign of Nature: Explorations in Ecocriticism’.
