The Centre for Environmental History was pleased to welcome two special guests in February for ‘breakfast on the deck’ on an autumnal Canberra morning. Professor Susan Lawrence traveled to Canberra for a research trip and delivered a seminar in the ANU School of History’s Seminar Series, titled ‘Rivers of Gold: An Environmental History of Water, Mining, and Landscape Change.’ Dr Rebecca Jones recently returned to Canberra to undertake a National Library of Australia Fellowship.
