Southern Deserts – History, Change, and the Future: A Humanities-Based Approach to the Deserts of Australia CFP

27-29 October 2020, University of Western Australia 

Research on the deserts of Australia has a long and illustrious history. Much of this research has been conducted by natural and social scientists and has made major contributions to our understanding not only of Australia but of deserts in a global context. In conjunction with one of the organizer’s Fulbright grant to work at the University of Western Australia in Perth, convenors invite participation in a symposium devoted to bringing the humanities more centrally into thinking about Australian desert worlds. 

Abstracts due 15 March 2020
