Exports for empire
This work considers the idea of science in Australia as a text
in process of being written. It places this alongside a post-colonial
consideration of the land, a territory where European precepts
often need to be shifted, so as to encompass the specific conditions
that have been dictated by the local. This is a wrestling (and
restless) regard: for what was believed to be under control, has,
many times over, released a thing more violent. It is out of respect
for such outcomes that I believe an Australian science has and
will continue to specifically distinguish itself.
