For one night only, see the canoe and join ABC broadcaster Gregg Borschmann in conversation with anthropologist Deborah Bird Rose, editor Lorraine Shannon, curator George Main and crocodile expert Grahame Webb talking about Plumwood’s work and how it helps us understand our – and the crocodile’s – place in the world. The event will be recorded as part of ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas program and will conclude with the launch of The Eye of the Crocodile, a posthumous publication of Plumwood’s essays.
