About Us

We are a group of humanities scholars dedicated to the future of life in this time of extinctions. Our historical moment is one of unprecedented loss of planetary forms of life. Our research and writing is situated in a lively practice that emerges from our entanglement in these processes of loss.


We are a group of humanities scholars based in Australia, Europe and North America. You can read more about our individual research and writing here.


The members of the Extinction Studies Working Group actively publish academic books and articles in a range of disciplinary areas. All of this work is aimed at furthering discussions about the meaning and significance of extinction in complex multispecies communities.
