Welcome to my blog.
I am starting this blog to coincide with the release of an academic book I have written called Dwelling in the Age of Climate Change: The Ethics of Adaptation (forthcoming, 2018, EUP). This book engages with continental philosophy in relation to emerging issues related to climate change adaptation and human mobility. I will write more about my book in future posts, but for now, I will just say that it is a book that argues for a radical rethinking of what we call ethics today and how this affects our personal and political action in the world.
I was an academic in the interdisciplinary field of critical and cultural studies and for over a decade I researched and taught at various Australian universities. In 2016, I decided to leave the institution behind me. The politics and economics of today’s universities was simply too much for me to bear.
I am now an Independent Scholar, a title that affords me enormous freedom. Alongside writing, I am retraining to be a psychologist. I am also a practicing Buddhist and will eventually blog about how Buddhism might be useful in relation to climate activism.
I hope you enjoy my musings here, and invite you to open a dialogue.
