Today, we speak to Dr Hannah Boast. Hannah is a Lecturer/Assistant Professor and Ad Astra Fellow in the School of English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin, in Ireland. She is probably best known for her work on literature and water. Her first book was called Hydrofictions: Water, Power and Politics in Israeli and Palestinian Literature, and was released in 2020 by Edinburgh University Press. But she works more broadly in resource politics, political ecology, food studies, queer ecology, and critical animal studies. In this episode, we talk about a paper that touches on several of these themes. ‘Theorizing the Gay Frog’ was released in November in Environmental Humanities.

This episode of is brought to you by AASA, the Australasian Animal Studies Association, which you can join today. It's also brought to you by the Animal Publics book series, from Sydney University Press, which features lots of great books about animal studies... Including a book about toads!
