Our guest this episode is the marvellous and generous Dr Sally Babidge, Senior Lecturer in Anthropology at the University of Queensland. Ahead of a seminar in Melbourne, we caught up with Sally to talk about second field sites, abandonment and dispossession, various Chile-Australia connections, the social lives of mines, and much more. Sally has been involved in extensive historical and anthropological research with Indigenous peoples in Queensland and Chile, and her research spans the anthropology of resource extraction, indigeneity, land rights, and applied Anthropology. In addition, as is often our custom, we’re joined by a guest host: Dr David Kelly, a postdoctoral researcher at Deakin’s HOME Research Hub whose current research focuses on urban space, housing, and displacement.
