Dr. Bill Metcalf, one of the key "narrators" in the Living in the Future Documentary "Deep Listening", is Research Methodologist at Griffith University in Brisbane. He did his first degree in economics, then he re-trained as a sociologist. But when he wanted to know more about intentional communities and couldn't find the information he needed, he re-trained again as an historian and is now recognised as one of the foremost scholars of intentional communities worldwide.
Bill is author of seven books on intentional communities, including The Findhorn Book of Community Living (Findhorn Press, 2004); Herrnhut: Australia’s First Utopian Commune (co-authored with B. Huf, Melbourne University Press, 2002); The Gayndah Communes (Central Queensland University Press, 1998); Shared Visions, Shared Lives: Communal Living Around the Globe (Findhorn Press, 1996); and From Utopian Dreaming to Communal Reality: Cooperative Lifestyles in Australia (University of New South Wales Press, 1995).
Bill is currently researching and writing the complete history of utopian communalism in Australia, with the working title, The Encyclopaedia of Australian Utopian Communalism.
