kanamaluka/Tamar River (estuary) is a fascinating water way: a complex ecosystem, a unique hydrological phenomenon and a major factor in the founding of Launceston. It is also a magnet for passionate debate and strong opinion. While discussion about its future rages in public, behind the scenes QVMAG is preparing a new gallery that celebrates life above and below the water.
Dr Christine Hansen is the current Manager of Knowledge and Content at QVMAG. She arrived in Launceston from Sweden where she was a scholar in the Centre for Environmental Humanities at Gothenburg University and worked for the Swedish National Museum of World Cultures. She has a PhD in History from the Australian National University and these days proudly calls herself a ‘Tasmanian.’
