AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the heart of the sleepy Tasmanian town of New Norfolk, half an hour's drive out of Hobart, lies the Willow Court Precinct. As you wander down the tree-lined streets of the township, the crumbling buildings of Willow Court come slowly into view. On the banks of the Lachlan River, right next door to the new supermarket complex with its perfectly rendered frontage, shiny signs and sparkling clean windows, sit three of the saddest, loneliest-looking buildings you're ever likely to see. Not a single shard of glass can be found in any of the windows of the multistorey structures. The tallest of the three, Derwent House, sits at the front, facing the road, with an enormous gaping hole in its side, revealing a glimpse of the emptiness that lies within. Graffiti covers the internal and external walls. It looks like something from a horror movie, a scene from the apocalypse. These particular buildings are kneed off, but this is only a small part of an incredible complex that holds so much of Tasmania's history.' (Introduction)

    'What if its too late? What if the damage is done? Our climate is changing, a shift that will be transformative. But like the intersectionality of our personal and social relations, the environmental effects of the Anthropocene do not begin or end with rises in global temperature, they are complicated by interconnected patterns of human influence over the natural world.'  (Jonathan Green Editorial Introduction)
