Researcher Summary

Annie Potts has two key domains of research expertise, both most closely affiliated with the field of Cultural Studies.

1. Human-Animal Studies.
Annie is Co-Principal Investigator of the Marsden project "Kararehe: The Animal in Culture in Aotearoa New Zealand", & co-author (with Philip Armstrong & Deidre Brown) of A New Zealand Book of Beasts: Animals in Art, Literature & Everyday Life (Auckland University Press, 2013). Her contribution to this book includes a detailed history of companion animals in New Zealand (including traditional pets of Maori); a critical analysis of anti-possum rhetoric; and an exploration of vegetarian sub-cultural identity in this country.

Annie has also completed a book for the Reaktion Animal Series called Chicken, an illustrated natural and cultural history of Gallus gallus domesticus (pub. December 2011); and edited a special issue of the journal "Feminism and Psychology" on gender, psychology and animals (2010).  

Her current project is a book called “Animal Earthquake Stories” which involves an illustrated account of what happened to Christchurch's animals post-quakes (to be published by Canterbury University Press, 2013/14).

2. Sexuality Studies.
Annie is the author of "The Science/Fiction of Sex: Feminist Deconstruction & the Vocabularies of Heterosex" (Routledge, 2002). She was principal investigator of a Health Research Council study on the social impact of Viagra (2001-2004); & has published recently on 'vegan sexuality'.
