Ethnoecology and the State in Regional China

Grant number: DP0987640 | Funding period: 2009 - 2014



This project will enhance Australian knowledge about diversity amongst Han Chinese communities in the way that they have adapted to their environment, a diversity that underpins the responsiveness of Chinese populations to environmental transformation in the contemporary period. It will also strengthen Australia¡ ̄s reputation as a centre for the study of regional cultures within the Chinese landmass, provide additional insights into the lower Yangzi delta, which is one of the most affluent regions of China today, and build up Australia¡ ̄s capacity to train postgraduates with an understanding of China¡ ̄s great regional diversity.
