About Census Dates


This unit provides an introduction to the history of ideas associated with the perception, representation and conservation of the natural environment. Wilderness is a highly contested space, and this unit will emphasise the competing contemporary meanings of wilderness in the contexts of colonisation, environmentalism and human/non-human relations. Through field trip/s, students will explore methods of articulating the concept of wilderness, building narratives of site/s that respond to histories, encounters, and traces.
