The very Australian camel

Just in time for Australia Day, AUSCCER’s Leah Gibbs talks with award-winning radio producer Michael Schubert of Soundminds Radio on the subject of the very Australian camel.

Their conversation challenges the ideas of ‘feral’ and ‘invasive’ species, and questions what it means to belong in Australia.

Tune in to the Community Radio Network at 10:45am EST on Thursday 26 January, or listen here.  

This conversation draws on Leah’s broad-ranging research on people and nature, including her work on camels with AUSCCER’s Jennifer Atchison and historian Ingereth Macfarlane. Read an earlier blog about their work, or download their paper.
