Dr Margaret Hickey lectures in humanities at the Shepparton campus of La Trobe University in her courses covers environmental matters.
And so in the 2019 short research talks under the Shepparton Research Network banner she discussed "Toward pastures green - how to "write through" in the age of the Anthropocene".
In discussing whether or not it was the literature that came first or the movements, Dr HIckey point to the "wonderful" book by Eric Rolls, "A Million Wild Acres", which she saw as igniting many of Australia's environmental movements.
