Tuesday 14 August 2018

Exploring Histories of Irish and Indigenous Australians is a free seminar presenting findings from Dr Dianne Hall’s forthcoming book, A New History of the Irish in Australia.

Dianne will share her findings about some of the overlooked interactions between Irish and Indigenous Australians throughout history from the book she co-authors with Elizabeth Malcolm.

The paper provides an overview of what is known about the history of Irish attitudes towards Indigenous people and explores their varied interactions throughout Australian history.
