Environment and Culture: Ecological and Aboriginal understandings of Country
Predominantly a field trip based learning experience.
If you’re after a culturally immersive elective (with a weeklong field trip) then this new Indigenous Specialisation 12 credit point elective being offered in semester 2, may be for you.
This new elective will have you;
• explore the cultural, ecological and technological underpinnings of Aboriginal knowledge and land use
• attend a week long field trip to Lake Condah/ Portland in western Victoria (1-5 Sept 2014) - known for Aboriginal technological achievements in aquaculture and permanent housing
• examine the environmental and social perspectives relating to the interaction between a local Aboriginal group and a unique Australian landscape over millennia.
• examine an Aboriginal group’s historical manipulation of natural resources
• explore examples of conflict, and co-operation, between Aboriginal and European people in the management of heritage and natural resources.
Capped at 20 students, enrol now rather than later.
