Leane, Professor Elizabeth
I work at the border of English and Antarctic studies, and often bring Animal Studies into this mix. I have written, among other things, about the politics of penguin films; huskies in Antarctic cinema; the consumption of dogs during the Australasian Antarctic Expedition; the significance of the dairy cows who travelled with Byrd’s second Antarctic expedition; the charisma of krill; and animals in travel writing. I often collaborate with colleagues in other disciplines, from musicology to marine biology. I also supervise postgraduate projects in Animal Studies.
