Name of Advisor/s

Summary of Project
This is a broad category that encompasses examinations of the history of tropical Australia. The environment of the north of the continent means that history has unfolded here differently from in southern Australia. This category allows examination of history that is clearly environmentally engaged such as the history of agricultural development, the history of hunting of large game, and the history of environmental features such as the reef and rainforest. In addition it includes history dependent on perceptions of the north such as the history of military development and the history of government rhetoric promoting development.
