Author’s Voice talk (Wellington) - Ravaged Beauty: An Environmental History of the Manawatu

Catherine Knight has long been fascinated by the interactions between people and the environment – what factors drive human behaviour, and how people’s attitudes and knowledge about the environment evolves.  Catherine was awarded the New Zealand Research Trust Fund Award in History in 2010 and the Claude McCarthy Fellowship in 2012 for her research of the environmental history of the Manawatu.  Catherine will discuss her resulting book  Ravaged Beauty: An Environmental History of the Manawatu in the second Author’s Voice talk.
