Decolonising Geology: A Discussion

Adam Bobette, Ruth Gamble, Cinti Lee, Chris Wilson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Decolonizing Geology was a discussion held on July 3, 2020, hosted by the New Earth Histories Research Program at the University of New South Wales. It was moderated by Adam Bobbette and included Ruth Gamble (La Trobe University), Cin-Ty Lee (Rice University), and Christopher Wilson (Flinders University). The discussion was about how researchers from different fields – geography, history, earth sciences, and archeology – understand the relationship between geology and society, time, cosmology, and Indigenous knowledge. The discussion began with a Welcome to Country, the convention in Australia of recognizing Aboriginal land and its traditional custodians. Because the event was held over Zoom, with speakers in four locations on two continents, Welcome to Country acknowledged
the Indigenous custodianship of each place.
