Kate Rigby

Professor of Environmental Humanities

Informing my recent research in the Environmental Humanities is my strong interest in ecocriticism, ecophilosophy and ecotheology. I am senior co-editor, with Freya Mathews, of the ecological humanities journal, PAN (Philosophy Activism Nature) and I was the founding President of the Association for the Study of Literature, Environment and Culture-Australia-New Zealand (http://www.aslec-anz.asn.au/) between 2004 and 2008. I am also a founding member of the Australian Ecological Humanities research network (http://www.ecologicalhumanities.org/) and the founding director of the Forum on Religion and Ecology@Monash.
