Wild Policy: a theory, method and activation

Wild Policy: a theory, method and activation

In this talk, anthropologist Tess Lea will speak to her new book, Wild Policy: Indigeneity and the Unruly Logics of Intervention (2020, Stanford UP). The book does three key things: it explains why policy will never be ‘good’ in Indigenous Australia; it creates a new framework for thinking about policy, anthropologically; and it demonstrates lively ways to write about arcane issues ethnographically. After briefly explaining the why and what of the book, Lea will explore how the concepts might be put to use.
