Dr Camille Roulière

Early career researcher Dr Camille Roulière is an Environmental Humanities scholar and creative writer whose work explores how humans engage and interact with their environments.  Openness and contemplative practices underpin her student-centred approach to teaching, enabling her to account for diverse modes of learning. She is particularly interested in the role of the body in mediating experiences and knowledges.  

Through her teaching, Camille emphasises that writing is first and foremost about sharing—it is about being able to manage uncertainty, relate to others, engage and connect with them, and ultimately change the world. Camille’s passion for words and their transformational power has led her to be awarded the 2017 CHASS Australia Prize for a Student, as well as a 2018 Dean’s Commendation and University Doctoral Research Medal (University of Adelaide). Her work has also been published in numerous journals, including Cordite Scholarly (2019), Art + Australia (2020), Meanjin (2021) and Performance Philosophy (2021). She is currently co-editing a collection for Routledge (with Claudia Egerer, from Stockholm University) and has a piece forthcoming with Shima (2022).  

Since she graduated in 2019, Camille has held various administrative and research support roles, most notably at Flinders University and at the JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice. She has also been the recipient of numerous grants for her research, including the 2019 Bill Cowan Barr Smith Library Fellowship. 

Camille lives on unceded Kaurna Country.
