Fijn, Dr Natasha
Dr Natasha Fijn is a Fejos Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethnographic Film, funded by the Wenner-Gren Foundation to film the medical treatment of herders and herd animals in Mongolia in 2017. Her research engages with aspects of visual anthropology, animal domestication and animal studies. Her ongoing interest is in cross-cultural perceptions and attitudes towards other animals; as well as the use of the visual, particularly observational filmmaking, as an integral part of her research. Her book Living with Herds: human-animal coexistence in Mongolia was published by Cambridge University Press in 2011.
Natasha is based at the ANU’s Mongolia Institute, College of Asia and the Pacific:
