I am a cultural theorist and writer. Much of my ethnographic work has been in the West Kimberley with the Goolarabooloo community. My collaboration with Bruno Latour has resulted in a special edition of New Literary History (“Recomposing the Humanities—with Bruno Latour”), 2016. I have recently translated three books: Isabelle Stengers: Another Science is Possible (Polity, 2018); Isabelle Stengers and Tobie Nathan, Doctors and Healers (Polity, 2018); Tobie Nathan, Wandering Souls (Polity, 2019).

My most recent book is The Mother’s Day Protest and Other Fictocritical Essays (RLI, 2016), and a new edition of Paddy Roe’s Gularabulu: Stories from the West Kimberley appeared with UWA Publishing, 2016). Current research and writing involves ethnographic documentation of Goolaraboolo country north of Broome, and The Children's Country is due out in 2020.

I welcome inquiries from Masters and PhD candidates interested in fictocritical writing, cultural theory and Indigenous Australian studies.
