1. Which is not a feature of Anderson's Culture and Nature at Adelaide Zoo?

  • Woven into the story are more general themes the construction of nature under colonialism, the gendered and racialized underpinnings of ‘human’ boundary-making practices in relation to ‘non-human’ animals- power and possess of domestication
  • Zoo as a cultural institution- a human adaptation of the ensemble of life forms that bears the name nature
  • Natures otherness- If the zoo is a ‘space’, Adelaide Zoo is a ‘place’ which tells us about its own framing contexts of colonialism and post-colonialism, to which must be added an imperial network of animal trading
