Dr Anna Boswell

Anna Boswell teaches in the Writing Studies programme at the University of Auckland. She talks and writes about human-animal matters in relation to settler colonial concerns and is particularly interested in zoos and captive wildlife display practices in the settler world. Her most recent research – which follows the trail of the longfin eel or tuna – examines intersections between memory, institutionality, pedagogy and ecology. Anna is a founding co-editor of Argos Aotearoa: A Journal of Place/Politics and is in the early planning stages of a research project that focuses on zoos in Aotearoa/New Zealand and Australia.
