Mariko Yoshida

Ph.D. candidate at The Australian National University. Her doctoral dissertation examines the trajectory of ecological uncertainty surrounding Pacific oysters, asking how unevenly distributed values and meanings have been dealt with by various communities including oyster producers, marine biologists, market authorities, distributors, and consumers. Her recent article, “Scaling Precarity: The Material-Semiotic Practices of Ocean Acidification,” is forthcoming from the Japanese Review of Cultural Anthropology. She is currently working on two co-edited books on knowledge practices of more-than-human production of food (forthcoming 2021).
