Dr Timothy Neale

Timothy Neale is Research Fellow in the Alfred Deakin Institute, Deakin University - Melbourne.

As a cultural geographer, his research addresses questions of how knowledge practices – Indigenous, non-indigenous and otherwise – are mobilised and transformed in relation to environments in peri-urban, rural and remote Australia. His doctoral project focused on the Wild Rivers Act 2005 (Qld), examining how questions of belonging, sustainability and development were articulated through the controversial law in far north Queensland.

He is the co-editor (with Stephen Turner) of a forthcoming special issue of Settler Colonial Studies on the topic of ‘Law, Water, Entitlement’.

Project leadership

This project commenced in July 2017. Within the context of reducing natural hazard risk and increasing resilience in southern Australia, it focuses explicitly on the risk and resilience priorities of Indigenous communities in southern Australia, the emergency management sector’s priorities for these communities, and how these interests interact. Its intention is to identify where improvements might be made to reduce natural hazard risk and increase social and ecological resilience. This research complements existing and completed CRC projects.
