Jamie Lorimer is an Associate Professor in the School of Geography and Environment at the University of Oxford. His research explores the geographies and politics of wildlife conservation. Recent work has focused on the emergence of rewilding as a new way of doing conservation, tracing the history of the concept and disputes over its different meanings. Jamie is especially interested in conservation in unorthodox settings and through different forms of public participation. His recent book, Wildlife in the Anthropocene: Conservation after Nature, gathers together ideas developed over the last decade to examine the implications of the Anthropocene for the natures and politics of conservation. Jamie has recently been expanding his research to explore emerging interests in rewilding the human microbiome.
