Carol will be a University Associate in the School of English, Journalism and European Languages during the period April 2012 and March 2014.
Carol’s research falls into the field of animal studies in the humanities, or human-animal studies (HAS). Her work to date has centred on representations of extinct and threatened species, visualisations of animals in popular culture and wildlife documentaries, and ethics in human-animal relations. She has published on the politics of picturing animals, the cultural histories of extinct species, photos of zoo animals, cloning and bioethics and, more recently, the animal in and as the medieval book. While continuing her work in animal studies, she plans to extend her writing to topics that focus on human behaviour.
Carol was the recipient of a University Medal in 2000 and is the curator of a multi-media exhibition “Imaging the Thylacine from Trap to Laboratory” on the University of Tasmania website. She is a founding member of the Australian Animal Studies Group and an International Associate of the New Zealand Centre for Human-Animal Studies at University of Canterbury, Christchurch. She has been editor of the quarterly Australian Animal Studies Group News Bulletin since its inception in 2008.
