Exploring the Middle Ground: New Histories of Cross-Cultural Encounters in Australian Maritime and Land Exploration

Shino Konishi and Maria Nugent, along with Tiffany Shellam (a PhD graduate from ACIH, now lecturer at Deakin University), have received an ARC Discovery Project Grant (DP110100931) for a three-year project that seeks to reinvigorate Australian exploration history through the lens of cross-cultural relations and encounters. The research will bring to the fore the experiences of Aboriginal people who came into contact with explorers, as well as the experience of Aboriginal people who participated in exploration parties.
