Associate Professor Rod Giblett’s latest book People and places of nature and culture is proving to be a great success.
The book was launched by Federal Green Senator, Scott Ludlam at an event hosted by the Centre for Research in Entertainment, Arts, Technology, Education and Communication (CREATEC) at ECU on 29, June 2011.
Noongar elder Noel Nannup commenced proceedings with a welcome to country. Senator Ludlam commented on how Associate Professor Giblett’s book dealt with the society-wide justifications of the unsustainable way we live; the front end of environmental problems.
People and places of nature and culture is part of the Cultural Studies of Natures series published by Intellect Books. The book affirms the importance of a sustainable relationship between nature and culture.
Associate Professor Giblett’s book is considered to be an important appraisal of the relationship between nature and culture, and a projection of what needs to change if we want to achieve environmental stability.

Associate Professor Giblett is the recipient of an Understanding Canada grant from the Canadian Government. The funding from this grant is enabling Associate Professor Giblett to travel to Canada to complete research for a book he is writing about Canadian wetlands from a cultural and historical perspective.
This trip is taking place whilst Associate Professor Giblett is on study leave, he has expressed his thanks to the Faculty of Education and Arts at ECU.
