Stretching from the many millennia of Aboriginal pre-contact history through to the years of convictism, free settlement, and into the Bjelke-Petersen era and beyond, Professor Evans will take you on a journey into the colourful, surprising and at times disturbing saga that is the history of this unique Australian state.
The course draws from both Professor Evans acclaimed book A History of Queensland, and the John Oxley Library's significant collection of heritage items, to provide a fascinating insight into Queensland’s past. Collection items are placed on display for participants to view and hold.
To enable active discussion of the topics covered, participants receive a copy of Professor Evans’ book and are asked to read the relevant chapters prior to each session. An accompanying Resourse Manual is also provided.
There are a few places left for both evenings if you are interested in attending.
