JULIE NICHOLS

Julie lectures in architecture, environment and sustainable design. Her main research interests link the fields of urban history and theory, urban cartography and urban design. Julie published her first book in 2014 titled “Maps and Meanings: Urban Cartography and Urban Design.” This research reflects Julie’s cross-cultural professional and academic experience as well as interdisciplinary research interests. Current and future work focusses on multiple methods of representation, recording and interacting with built cultural heritage in Aceh and Bali in Indonesia, Thailand and Australia. These interactions include capturing the intellectual histories of religion, colonialism in Aceh in the early modern period, in addition to the vernacular knowledge of these regions which enabled transitions into modernity. http://aad.unisa.edu.au/vkrg
