Abstract


  • This project aims to collate, digitise and make the Bush Collection available as an online open access database and special collection at the University of Tasmania. The Bush Collection is a private, historic collection of documents from Antarctic treaty negotiations, gathered over a thirty year period by Australian Department of Foreign Affairs lawyer, Mr William Bush. This project will make the collection publically available for researchers by creating an online open access database that will provide a resource of primary data for Antarctic scholars. The database will facilitate a new era of research on historical and current issues in Antarctic governance within both Australian and oversees universities.
