About the Event
Nicole will talk about her PhD research which is centred on the life of Sarah Brooks; part ecobiography, part environmental history, and will utilise the botanical specimens collected by Sarah as another archive to help tell her story. The research will also focus on the contrast between Sarah’s dawning understanding of the cultural and ecological values of the place she lived and the impact of the colonisation process she was part of.
