Celine   Travesi

Postdoctoral Fellow

Aix-Marseille University, CNRS, EHESS (France)
[ ]

I am an anthropologist and postdoctoral associate at the CREDO (UMR 7308 AMU-CNRS- EHESS). My research investigates the Indigenous politics of knowing and relations with the ocean. Drawing on the anthropology of knowing, it combines different interrelated topics: Aboriginal ecological skills and techniques, tourism, and intercultural relations. Focusing on the fishing and hunting activities, as well as on other techniques related to the marine and costal landscape of Bardi people, in the Northwestern Kimberley region of Australia, I examine the various ways in which those individuals, who refer to themselves as ‘saltwater people’, conceive, reproduce, act with, and come to know the land and sea through these practices. I also explore the role of Indigenous and non-Indigenous conceptualizations and practices of knowledge in co-producing and negotiating their contemporary relations in different contexts (i.e. tourism, natural resources management, or the ethnographic encounter).
