Migration and the Private Lives of the Hoddle Grid

13 February 2016 @ 1.00 pm - 2.30 pm

Join a historian of colonial Melbourne, Nadia Rhook, to retrace the urban foot paths of migrants – from the British colonists who laid the Hoddle Grid over Wurundjeri land to the nascent South Asian diaspora based around ‘Little Lon’ and the politics of love, labour and opium in Little Bourke’s Chinese Quarter.

Discover how Melbourne has been made and remade by migration and its fraught restrictions.
