Jointly hosted by the Centre for the Study of the Inland (CSI) and the Transforming Human Societies Research Focus Area at La Trobe University, this event, at the Shepparton Campus of La Trobe University, brings together key analysts, commentators and politicians to discuss what the outcome of the 2019 election means for regional Australia.
What role did the media play in the campaign and the outcome? To what extent did issues such as climate and the environment play in regional Australia’s voting behaviour? How might we understand the ‘rural vote’? With a stellar line-up, including local MP Suzanna Sheed, McPherson Media Group Executive Chairman Ross McPherson, Associate Professor Andrea Carson, and the Grattan Institute’s Carmela Chivers, join us at 5 30 pm for a 6 pm lively discussion as we dissect the election and its implications for rural and regional Australia. Light refreshments will be provided before and after the event.
The Centre for the Study of the Inland is presenting Has the Climate Changed? Regional Australia and the 2019 Federal Election.
The Centre for the Study of the Inland (CSI) is based in the La Trobe University College of Arts, Social Science and Commerce and brings together key LTU strengths including Archaeology, History and Social Sciences. 'Inland' is both a physical space and an idea. It can be variously named the 'outback', 'the bush', 'the west', the 'wilderness'. In Australia as in other countries, the inland has been lived in, fought over, and transformed by millennia of human interaction and environmental change. The landscapes of the inland have been made by the social, political and cultural histories of the people that use, care and struggle for the land, water and resources found within.
CSI has a broad focus on inland Australia, and provides a clear, and multi-disciplinary platform for research on the interconnecting themes of water, landscapes and land use (including indigenous land use), agricultural and pastoral history, settlement and migration, resource extraction, and human responses to long-term climate and environmental change.
