From the Gondwana/Land project (https://gondwanaland.net)

What does it mean to write the modern history of an ancient megacontinent? Earth scientists know a great deal about the geological history of Gondwanaland and its breakup that began 180 million years ago, eventually creating present day Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America, South Asia and Antarctica. The Gondwana/Land Project, generously funded by the Australian Research Council and the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council brings together historians from today’s southern lands to address Gondwanaland’s national and continental fragments within modern environmental, cultural, political, colonial, and postcolonial histories.

This talk is part of the Vital Geographies - Department of Geography series.
