Join us for an evening of discussion and celebration.
Associate Professor Kerrie Foxwell-Norton and Dr Deb Anderson share their research, The Women of the Great Barrier Reef: The Untold Stories of Environmental Conservation in Queensland.
Deb and Kerrie's research shines 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.
Following the talk drinks and canapes will be served.
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.
You'll hear from 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.
When: Tuesday 7 June, 2022, 6pm - 7.30pm
