2022 John Oxley Library Fellow
The 2022 John Oxley Library Fellowship was awarded to Dr Mimi Tsai for her project, Vernacular Landscapes and Queensland Memories: Exploring Queensland’s resilience through narratives of therapeutic environments.
Mimi's project explores the role of people-place relationships in Queensland history by examining three diverse cases that share healing stories - prison farming in H.M. Penal Establishment of St. Helena Island, Queensland war gardens and Chinese market gardening. Learning new perspectives from these histories, this fellowship will then investigate Queenslanders’ COVID-19 pandemic gardens and gardening experiences over the past two years.
