The Reef

Bringing underwater worlds to the surface

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. We explore and analyse the stories, theories and representations describing Western and Indigenous relationships with the oceans, at the intersections of art, science and the humanities to conduct research that informs and advocates change.
