Australian Environmental History – Don Morris Walk

Environmental History & Heritage

At the June 2022 Hunter Living Histories showcase Associate Professor Nancy Cushing spoke about the HIST2065 ‘Australian Environmental History’ course and assignment specifically on the heritage of the University of Newcastle Callaghan Campus.

Many of the students during Semester 1, 2022 reached out to Special Collection to find relevant resources related to the history of the campus.
