Australia’s Marine Environment: The History and Politics of Exploitation and Conservation

Climate change and resource exploitation is posing acute challenges for Australia’s marine environment. In this webinar three historians draw on their research in different contexts and cultures and together address key issues in the history and politics of marine exploitation and conservation. Lynette Russell (Monash University) reflects on ‘Looking Out, Looking In: visitors from the sea rethinking ocean voyages and Indigenous Australians’. Alessandro Antonello (Flinders University) examines the history of ‘Protecting and possessing the cold Southern Ocean’. Joseph Christensen (University of Western Australia) considers 'Reconstructing a history of recreational fishing in Western Australia'.
