A respect for landscape is built into our name. We recognise that landscapes change, and that our perceptions of landscape are strongly contingent on culture. Professor Barry Golding is undertaking a State Library Victoria Fellowship in 2023. His project involves research and writing a book, Six Peaks Speak: Unsettling changes in Southern Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
Prof Golding’s exploration of Aboriginal, colonial and scientific responses to landscape in part of the Central Highlands will be of interest to all like-minded people.
His presentation is based on emerging insights from his wide-ranging research for the SLV Fellowship, using ‘unsettling’ as an underpinning theme. His aim is to provide evidence-informed insights into the conservation of mountains in the landscape, with the broader aim of making informed decisions about their care as important public places.
The six peaks of particular interest are today known as mounts Kooroocheang, Beckworth, Greenock, Tarrengower, Alexander and Franklin.
