Connor, Dr Andrea
Andrea Connor completed her PhD in Cultural Studies in 2013 at the University of Technology, Sydney. Her thesis is due to be published by Routledge in 2017. She has worked as both a journalist and academic and has an enduring fascination with the relationships between people and the non-human things and creatures that also populate this planet. She first became attuned to the creaturely ways of the Ibis whilst working at the City of Sydney where she was confronted daily with stories of people’s encounters with this feathered migrant to the inner city. Ibis and their ubiquitous presence in the city now occupy her thoughts perhaps more than they should.
