Commemoration of the life and work of Deborah Bird Rose
When: Sunday 24 March, 1-4pm
Where: Fitzpatrick Park, Georges River National Park (details below)

Deborah Bird Rose (1946-2018) was an anthropologist, a philosopher, a storyteller, and a passionate advocate for social and environmental justice. Over the course of her career, Debbie made major contributions in a range of fields, from the environmental humanities, and the anthropology of Indigenous Australia, to extinction studies, animal and multispecies studies, and philosophies of ethics, justice, religion, temporality, and place. As consulting anthropologist she also played a major role in several important land claim cases. She published many widely read, cited, and often reprinted and award winning books, including: Dingo Makes Us Human (1992), Reports from a Wild Country (2004), and Wild Dog Dreaming (2011).

This event will include a series of short talks that celebrate aspects of Debbie's life and work. The talks will be followed by drinks and nibbles and an opportunity to discuss and reflect with others.
