Bushwhacking the Tasmanian peri-urban: Musings on succession, displacement, permaculture and class relations

David Iaquinta
Professor of Sociology & Demography
Nebraska Wesleyan University

Join visiting US scholar David Iaquinta for an informal seminar as he discusses his work on Peri-urban Typology (PUT) and the purpose & methodology of his research in Tasmania. David will explore key features of the peri-urban in the Tasmanian experience; the emerging old timer-newcomer contradiction in the peri-urban; aspects of public perception in Tasmania that seem to mirror those in the US; and social class in relation to permaculture & displacement in peri-urban Tasmania.

Followed by networking drinks in the Social Sciences level 4 tearoom.

This free seminar is presented by the School of Social Sciences and the Institute for the Study of Social Change. All welcome.
