Ruth Morgan

Ruth Morgan is a Lecturer in Australian History at Monash University whose work focuses on the environmental history and history of science of water resources and their management. Ruth has examined these themes in the Western Australian context, focusing particularly on scientific, political and lay concerns about water scarcity and a drying climate. Her work contrasts Indigenous and non-Indigenous approaches to land and water management in urban and rural Australia, and how these approaches have changed over time.
