Missing in action
I've been missing-in-action for a few weeks. I've been going to various events. One of the most interesting was hosted by the Gippsland campus of Monash University (and most particularly Margaret Somerville). The one day symposium Landscapes and Learning brought together a cross-disciplinary audience and featured presentations by, amongst others, my colleagues Barbara Comber, Helen Nixon (pictured here preparing for their seminar), Debra Hayes and Alan Mayne as well as well-known scholar and artist Paul Carter. An interesting day. Lots to think about. Look out for the edited collection that will follow.
I've also been reading this fabulous and intensely thought provoking book by Paul Gilroy.
