Yasmine Musharbash

Yasmine Musharbash is Senior Lecturer in the School of Archaeology and Anthropology at the Australian National University. She has been conducting participant observation-based research in central Australia since the mid-1990s. Her work is broadly concerned with everyday relations, and she has explored this by focussing on embodiments and the emotions (studying grief, boredom, sleep, the night, and fear) and on social relations (between Warlpiri people and nonindigenous people, strangers, monsters, animals, and the elements). She is the author of Yuendumu Everyday (2009) and co-editor of a number of volumes including Monster Anthropology (2014) and Monster Anthropology: Social Transformation and Change (in press).
