This week on Knowing Animals we are joined by Professor Elizabeth Leane. Elle is professor of English and ARC Future Fellow at the University of Tasmania. Today we discuss Elle’s article ‘American Cows in Antarctica: Richard Byrd’s polar diary as symbolic settler colonialism’ which was published in ‘Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History’ in 2017. The piece was co-authored by Hanne Nielsen.
