Mr Scott Rawlings

Scott Rawlings is a PhD candidate at Deakin University (Melbourne, Australia). His current research explores ethical discourse on the environment in post-Hiroshima literature drawing on the philosophies of Nietzsche, Heidegger, Deleuze and Guattari. He has published academic papers and presented at a number of international conferences on the subject. Scott also works as a principal analyst for the Department of Sustainability and Environment, where he has contributed analysis and writing to a number of government policy frameworks including the 'Victorian Greenhouse Strategy'. Therefore, he is in the rare position of being able to continually explore synergies between the humanities and public policy, apply his research where appropriate, and cross the threshold between theory and praxis. In his proposed paper for the Third International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities, 'The Triple Bottom Lie: Nietzsche and Environmental Sustainability', Scott will discuss these synergies and demonstrate how research in literature can inform public policy production in the environmental domain.
