Louise Noble

Louie NobleLouise Noble's research area is early modern English literature and culture with a focus on the relationship between literature, culture and the natural world in early modern England and extending to post eighteenth-century Australia. Specifically she is interested in the imaginary history of water and how different representational forms, such as literature, music and art, shape resilient cultural approaches to water and what we can learn from this for the future. She is presently working on a book on water management in sixteenth and seventeenth-century rural England and its ideological and metaphorical constructs.

Louise is a member of WRaIN, the Water Research and Innovation Network at UNE, and with Robyn Bartel, Stephen Harris and Jacqueline Williams is currently co-editing an interdisciplinary book titled, Water Policy, Imagination and Innovation: Interdisciplinary Approaches, under contract with Routledge Press in their Earthscan Studies in Water Resource Management series.
