History, Nature, and Nation: Tom Griffiths and Australian history symposium

27 November 2018 @ 12.00 pm - 5.00 pm

Over more than thirty years, Tom Griffiths has plumbed memories, land, and archives to reveal the complexities and richness of Australia’s cultural and environmental history. This symposium is convened to honour Tom’s move from full-time academic life to a full-time writing life. Papers from eminent Australian historians will reflect on Tom’s career and contributions to Australian historiography, and papers from some of Tom’s many students and collaborators will perform histories in the artful spirit he has always advocated for the discipline of history. The symposium will conclude with a conversation between Tom and leading Australian critic, journalist, and editor, Morag Fraser.
