Gathering histories for ecological restoration: Restoring with not to the past
22 March 2017
Fenner Seminar Room, Building #141
Linnaeus Way, ANU
Responding to the changing use of history in ecological restoration, this work attends to social, cultural and political aspects of the practice. In this presentation I will map out the broad project and provide case-study accounts of my research practice. I will demonstrate how tools from the humanities and social sciences can be employed to strengthen relationships between people and place through social and environmental change, and to attend to the ethics of restoration in a settler context.
