In this interview, we discuss Fiona's 2015 academic article, titled "Dingoes and Dog-Whistling: A Cultural Politics of Race and Species in Australia". Fiona tells me about the political situation regarding dingoes in Australia, and she explains how violence against dingoes is driven, in large part, by the sheep exploitation industry (and funded by the Australian government). She also discusses the significance of the term "anthropocentrism", and she mentions two vegan scholars whose work interests her.
You can find some of Fiona's thought-provoking articles and book chapters, including her work on dingoes and anthropocentrism, on her Academia.edu page. I hope to interview her again in the future to discuss her other work, as well!
