Professor Ann McGrath from the ANU School of History has been awarded an ARC Linkage Grant to investigate the social and environmental links that create historical ‘highways’ of understanding, including song-lines, tracks, exploration, trade, pastoral and tourism routes in selected indigenous sites in New South Wales and the Northern territory.

By researching written texts, art, film and sound evidence, the project will develop innovative models for comprehensive Indigenous and landscape-focused historical interpretation the research team will develop a deeper knowledge of Australian landscapes and their interconnected histories of place to enhance the social well-being of the Indigenous and wider community.

The Exploring Indigenous Landscapes research project partners are the NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change, the Commonwealth Director of National Parks, the National Film and Sound Archive and Ronin Films who combine to bring together a unique interdisciplinary and industry team of people, publications, pod-streaming and other history delivery strategies to deepen the understandings of internationally significant Australian landscapes.

The Exploring Indigenous Landscapes ARC Linkage Grant Head is Professor Ann McGrath from the ANU School of History.
