I've kept this blog, on and off, since 2006. In 2015 I used it to chart daily encounters, images, thoughts and feelings about volcanic basalt/bluestone in Melbourne and Victoria, especially in the first part of the year. I plan to write a book provisionally titled Bluestone: An Emotional History, about human uses of and feelings for bluestone. But I am also working on quite a few other projects and a big grant application, especially now I am on research leave. I'm working mostly from home, then, for six months, and will need online sociability for company!

Early Modern Print Culture at Melbourne

Two new initiatives around early modern print culture in Melbourne...

Announcing the launch of two new websites:




We are very pleased to announce that two websites developed with the assistance of a Scholarly Innovation Information Grant from the Baillieu Library are now Œlive‚ and can be found at the following addresses:



The ŒMelbourne Prints‚ website is being used to showcase a range of rare early modern books and prints held in the Baillieu Library, and ˆ as a work in progress ˆ will also feature work by students enrolled in several subjects in the School of Historical Studies, including the Honours and Masters by Coursework subject ŒMedieval Manuscripts and Early Print‚. The ŒDisasters in Early Modern Europe‚ website features information about the ARC Discovery Grant held by Charles Zika, Susan Broomhall and Jenny Spinks. Please drop by both sites as we continue to develop them over the next few years.
