Background

Holly Marriott Webb is an anthropologist and historian interested in exploring past animal lives and human-animal relationships, as well as investigating how these histories can guide us in making better and more just conservation decisions in the Anthropocene present. Her specialism is in the red deer, deer stalkers, and hunting landscapes of the Scottish Highlands. She has a PhD in history and anthropology from Aarhus University, Denmark, an MA in Global Environmental History from Uppsala University, Sweden, and a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford, UK.
