LANDSCAPE AND CULTURAL HERITAGE
Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
In this subject our studies are based on the areas of central Victoria that were the estates of the Dja Dja Wurrung and Daung Wurrung clans. Students will examine: the contrasting Aboriginal and European modes of imagining and shaping this landscape; the violence and clash of values on the frontier; the transformations of the landscape by successive generations of Europeans and the traces of their failed dreams and abandoned traditions. We will focus on specific stories and places, but also engage in theoretical reflection on the relationship of the human world to the Earth. Students will be introduced to the specific skills of interpreting physical and cultural landscapes, the use and reading of maps and be introduced to some basic tools of spatial analysis. The current legal and regulatory framework for recognizing and protecting Aboriginal and landscape heritage will be introduced.
