The ARC-funded Invisible Farmer project is the largest ever study of Australian women on the land. This three year project involves a nation-wide partnership between rural communities, academics, government and cultural organisations.
It is wonderful to have the opportunity to join the project team to learn more about this fascinating part of Australia’s history. Drawing on stories already gathered by Museums Victoria, largely contemporary stories, my role is to develop these into blog and social media posts. These posts, told by women in their own voice about their own farming history, attract an extraordinary amount of public interest – well beyond friends and family and beyond even local communities.
