The Origins of Agriculture with Prof Bruce Pascoe and Assoc Prof Alison Crowther

Prof Bruce Pascoe and Assoc Prof Alison Crowther will discuss the origins of agriculture from a local Indigenous Australian perspective and a global perspective. Prof Pascoe (University of Melbourne) has argued for a fresh perspective on the practices of the first Australians. His book ‘Dark Emu’ has stimulated renewed efforts to understand the long history of Australian food production systems. Assoc Prof Crowther (The University of Queensland) will discuss current and emerging insights into the diverse history of agriculture internationally.

This event is a prelude to the HarlanIV symposium which will be held in Brisbane, Australia for the first time in 2022 in conjunction with the TropAg conference. The Harlan symposia are dedicated to the origins of agriculture and the domestication, evolution, and utilization of genetic resources. Ongoing research is revealing the complexity of food production systems and their development both in Australia and globally.
