Country landscapes, private dreams? Tree change and the dissolution of rural Australia

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

This chapter seeks, among other things, to question past sociological research studying in-migration in Montanta which attests that migration occurs due to the failure of social control (see Jobes, 2000). Drawing upon academic research and qualitative thematic analysis of popular representation of tree changers in Australian news media, this chapter traces the development of the urban-rural migration of tree changers, defined as those who move from Australia's capital cities to country towns in rural Australia, in search of a better 'lifestyle'. News articles were obtained from the electronic database, Factiva ,which was searched using the keywords 'tree change' for every instance up to October 31, 2008, which yielded over 2000 articles.
