Mapping Australia's Dark Past - Dr Jennifer Debenham
Thursday 29 October - Maitland Library - Free
An interactive online map of massacre sites gained worldwide exposure for Dr Lyndall Ryan and her team at the University of Newcastle when it was published in 2017. The project revealed the true extent of the massacre of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on the colonial frontier of Australia.
The research is an important ‘truth telling’ project, with the hope of bringing about historical acceptance and in doing so contribute to a path towards reconciliation.
Dr Jennifer Debenham is the Senior Research Associate in the Colonial Frontiers Massacres research team at the University of Newcastle.
