Eben Kirksey

Eben Kirksey is a social and cultural anthropologist and Senior lecturer at UNSW, Australia. He studies the political dimensions of imagination as well as the interplay of natural and cultural history. Writing in collaboration with Stefan Helmreich, he coined the term “multispecies ethnography” to describe new approaches for studying contact zones where the lines separating nature and culture have broken down.  His latest book, an edited collection called The Multispecies Salon is in the Fall 2014 catalog of Duke University Press.  Eben Kirksey holds a three-year DECRA fellowship from the Australian Research Council which is enabling his work in Europe, the Americas, and the Pacific (2014-2017).
