AUSTRALIAN CULTURE AND LAND
Credit points: 15
Students learn about the indigenous and European culture origins and characteristics of land tenure and management of both public and private lands in Australia. They are introduced to the history of our current land management system. Students engage with ideas related to the cultural construction of nature and the way in which current beliefs and practices about land use are embedded in cultural accident and history. In exploring the current institutional and legal structures involved in land use, students are able to understand why differing expectations, regulations and practices apply to a range of land designations.
