Personal profile


Catie is an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellow in the Anthropology and Sociology discipline group. Through the first nationwide qualitative study of rare breed farmers, her DECRA project aims to advance knowledge of livestock breed extinctions and domestication in the climate change era. See here for further information. 

Her prior research explores the ways in which the cultural values and practices of settler communities influence, and are influenced by, the particularities of their social and natural environments. With a regional focus on southern Africa and Australia, Catie has published on issues ranging from the anthropology of food (and meat in particular), through to tourism, racial and national identities, and issues of health and illness. She has a PhD (anthropology) from UWA, is a former University of Melbourne McArthur Fellow, and sits on the Editorial Board of Anthropological Forum.
