EAT (Environment & Arts Trajectory) is a platform to reflect and share research projects/practice that propels and informs the research fields of Arts and the Environment.
EAT is calling for papers that present research at any stage of its trajectory, from proposition to resolution, that lies within the field of Arts and the Environment.
EAT keynote speaker is art historian, author and environmental lawyer Professor Tim Bonyhady:
Tim completed his PhD at Cambridge University on public rights in the English countryside resulting in his influential book The Law of the Countryside: The Rights of the Public.
Since then he has explored many aspects of Australian environmental law - especially in his books Environmental Protection and Legal Change, Places Worth Keeping: Conservationists, Politics and Law , and The Colonial Earth which won the New South Wales Premier’s Prize for Australian History and the Queensland Premier’s Prize for History.
Tim recently published Good Living Street: The Fortunes of My Viennese Family, which coincides with the major NGV exhibition, Vienna, Art and Design.
Tim was a former curator at the National Gallery of Australia, and is now director of the Australian Centre for Environmental Law and the Centre for Climate Law and Policy at the Australian National University.
