Environmental History and Garden History Research Unit (EGHRU)
The Environmental History and Garden History Research Unit (EGHRU) is the premiere research unit of its type in the southern hemisphere. It brings together leading world experts, emerging researchers, and local and international organisations to promote interdisciplinary research in environmental history and garden history. The Unit works with scholars across science and the humanities, and also with internationally award-winning institutions such as Hamilton Gardens. Its activities include hosting visiting scholars, running conferences, organising public lectures, network facilitation, research supervision, and public outreach. Through its Director, Professor James Beattie, an expert in garden and environmental history, the Unit co-hosts the International Review of Environmental History and Palgrave Studies in World Environmental History.
