He is particularly interested in the relational construction of cultural Others in environmental disputes, and how these are mobilised as performances of individual, cultural and national identities.

Whiteness and Social Change

Colin Salter provides an up-close, theoretically informed and critically alert analysis of how white ways of knowing and seeing can permeate the assumptions and actions of white supporters of Indigenous campaigns. This is important and delicate work that honours both the necessity of solidarity and its challenges.
