Research Reveals: Women of the Great Barrier Reef: Stories of Environmental Conservation in Queensland

Tue 7 Jun · 6–7:30pm
Research Reveals: Women of the Great Barrier Reef: Stories of Environmental Conservation in Queensland Our final Research Reveals event showcasing the work of our 2020 Queensland Memory Fellows will be a special talk not to be missed. Join Associate Professor Kerrie Foxwell-Norton and Dr Deb Anderson, 2020 John Oxley Library Fellows as they share their research from their project, The Women of the Great Barrier Reef: The Untold Stories of Environmental Conservation in Queensland.  Kerrie and Deb's project is inspired by the story of Terrie Ridgway, who in 1966 quit her typing-pool job in Brisbane and moved to a remote island in the Great Barrier Reef. Aged 19, she became ‘the girl Robinson Crusoe’, living solo and spending her time studying marine life, aiming to identify the more than 1,500 species of Reef fish. Come and listen to Deb and Kerrie's research as they shine a light on the stories of women who have been involved in the protection and conservation of the Reef, amplifying their voices and capturing a history of the reef untold. On the evening we are excited to also launch a special issue of the Queensland Review titled: Between Pride and Despair: Stories of Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforests. This special issue combines combines scholarly works with personal reflections from those who have led, and continue to lead, our conservation efforts and responses – from local community efforts, including those of First Nations communities, to national and global forums of policy, law, activism and scientific research. Please join the editors Professor Iain McCalman and Associate Professor Kerrie Foxwell-Norton, and some of the contributors to explore the significant contribution of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences  to these Queensland nature superstars.  Light refreshments will be provided on the Queensland Terrace after the talk. When: Tuesday 7 June, 2022, 6pm - 7.30pmWhere: Auditorium 2, level 2, State Library of Queensland. Can't make it in person? Join us online from home .
