This course explores the relationship between humans and nature by examining the interactions between natural, social, and political processes across time. The approach will be chronological and thematic with a concentration on Australian environment. These will include Indigenous approaches to caring for Country, colonisation and land settlement, ‘natural’ disasters, the Murray-Darling Basin and anthropogenic climate change. The course explains how history can help us understand current environmental issues.
