Using the interdisciplinary methods and approaches of the environmental humanities, we are investigating the problems and futures of the Great Barrier Reef within the context of the broader oceanic issues impacting our globe including coral bleaching, species extinction, depletion of fish, declining health and changing chemistries of sea water, and loss of human habitats and cultures.
The Realm Aquatic. Imagining, representing and understanding the Underwater World, c. 1740-2014. This project between Humanities, Arts, Ecology and Science scholars at the Universities of Sydney, Stanford and Vanderbilt commenced on a modest scale in 2013 and has already seen several joint conferences, colloquia and Great Barrier Reef research expeditions.
