Available as an elective. Subject to enrolment quota. This unit requires a moderate level of physical fitness for bush walking.
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.
