Lis, Natalie

Research interests / activities:

I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Queensland in the School of Architecture. My research is focused on human-built avian architecture. I research how built structures and environments have been used to modify domestic and tamed avian behaviours and how it has made animals vulnerable to exploitation through entertainment and commodity. I investigate cultural and material histories of birds in addition to contemporary architecture and industrial practice.
