Entanglements: Leah Gibbs - On the Island; On the Water; Underwater

Season 1, Ep. 3

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef has become something of a poster child for contemporary climate change with mass coral bleaching events a very real example of the effects of warming ocean temperatures.

In this talk, Dr Leah Gibbs views the Great Barrier Reef from three positions: on an island; on the water; and underwater. 

Dr Gibbs is Senior lecturer in Human Geography at the Australian Centre for Culture, Environment, Society and Space at the University of Wollongong. She visited and explored the Great Barrier Reef in 2019 and was saddened by the loss, but surprised by the life.

This talk was presented as part of the Entanglements Lecture Series, sponsored by ACCESS and the Animal Studies Research Centre, UOW, and the Wollongong Art Gallery.
