Leah Gibbs - Entanglements: Humans, Animals, Environments Public Lecture
Wollongong Art Gallery
ON THE ISLAND; ON THE WATER; UNDERWATER WITH LEAH GIBBS
Environments are undergoing tremendous change. Much of that change is prompted by human action. Australia’s Great Barrier Reef has become something of a posterchild for contemporary climate change. What does being in a place tell us about a place?
What does it tell us about the processes that create and change a place?
This talk views the Great Barrier Reef from three positions: on an island; on the water; underwater. Leah Gibbs is a Senior Lecturer in the School Geography and Sustainable Communities at the University of Wollongong. She is fascinated by relationships between people and nature.
