Research Interests

Rosie Ibbotson's research centres on the long nineteenth century, and concerns the entanglements of visual representation and environmental change. She is writing a book titled 'Picturing the imperial Anthropocene: visual representation, migratory imaginaries, and environmental change in the long nineteenth century', and recently she has published on the intersections of visual and material culture and de-extinction. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Canterbury, Rosie was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Yale Center for British Art, and she completed her doctorate at the University of Cambridge, focusing on the transnational Arts and Crafts Movement.
