This website aims to develop case studies of the development of farming practices and attendant transformations of local ecologies of defined blocks of land. Through these biographies of particular plots of land we are developing localised analyses of the wider historical trends in the political economy/ecology of the Northern Rivers.

Reading Oral Histories

The narratives on this website are intended to evoke the feeling of being told a story. This is quite different from a written book or letter, or a prepared speech. Instead, the stories presented here are people’s memories and opinions, and should not be taken as complete or verified accounts of events.

Conversations have been audio recorded and then transcribed. Then, the storyteller and/or interviewer have lightly edited them to provide clarity and to ensure they represent others in a respectful way.
