Applications are invited from prospective doctoral students to join a dynamic team of six historians working on a major new project in Australian history. We are producing a comparative study of the provision, use and social impact of water and water infrastructure in Australias five largest cities from 1900 to the present. In doing so, we seek to reveal the complexities of water systems and water use in urban Australia in the past, which continue to influence water management in the present. The doctoral student will commence research on a topic within this area to be negotiated with the supervisors, from an urban, environmental or economic history perspective. Projects comparing aspects of urban water history in Australia and elsewhere are encouraged.
Honours or MA degree in History, Economic History, Historical Geography or related field at a satisfactory level of achievement.
