Maria Harries has been involved with many organisations and causes over many years. She avoids being labelled and says that she is a frustrated gardener and would prefer to be  gardening than writing these days. Despite this she has many current interests and commitments.

Maria’s professional commitments include being Senior Honorary Research Fellow at UWA, Adjunct Professor at Curtin University School and working as a researcher and research supervisor.  She has also held governance roles with a number of state and national organisations involved with funding, service delivery, health, mental health, violence, adult survivors of abuse, and child, adult and family welfare.

During this podcast Maria referred to several podcasts that she regularly listens to including:

The Minefield – Waleed Aly and Scott Stephens

The philosophers zone’ podcast

A number of books were also mentioned including:

Gondwana Theology – Garry Deverell 

For Small Creatures Such As We: Rituals and reflections for finding wonder – Sasha Sagan

A Bridge Between: Spanish Benedictine Missionary Women in Australia – Katherine Massam

This podcast was recorded in 2020 before the outcome of the US Presidential election was known.
