about elese

I'm Dr Elese Dowden (she / her) a writer and recovering philosopher living in Naarm / Melbourne on unceded Wurundjeri land. I was born in Aotearoa / New Zealand with Irish and English ancestry.

I completed my MA in Philosophy at the University of Auckland and my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Queensland. I graduated in 2019, living briefly in Ottawa before moving back to Australia. Now I write poetry, articles and reviews for various journals, which you can browse in my portfolio.

Struggling with the barriers of the western academy, I founded the australasian posthumanities in 2020 as a digital network of thinkers across disciplines. To find out more about what we do, listen the APH podcast series, or see the website.
