Rose Williamson

Rose WilliamsonRose Williamson is currently undertaking a research project on the rhetoric of resilience and natural disaster in Australia. The project examines parliamentary speeches (federal and state), press reports and magazine articles on the responses to natural disaster made by Australians from the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries. It seeks to identify the ways in which these responses define Australians nationally and regionally, and in relation to the natural environment. Rose is a member of WRaIN, the Water Research and Innovation Network at UNE.
