The Briefs are planned as a cumulative series of informal papers investigating the current state of heritage in Victoria. Subjects range from summaries of Victoria’s environmental and geological history to an analysis of the meaning of heritage today as we face reconciliation with First Nations and other local minorities who have been left out, or side-lined, in Victoria’s story of itself.
Some 40 titles are in preparation.
