Research interests

Alana’s research draws on ethnographic and creative methods to examine the ways affect, environment, and narrative interface with power structures in the processes of worlding. This has involved exploring perceptions of belonging, settler-colonial legacies, and the environment in Outback Queensland and, more recently, collaboration and decision-making  for conservation and development on the Tiwi Islands. She is the recipient of the 2021 Australian Anthropological Society Thesis Prize.
