NRW 2022 – Making history with Aboriginal people

May 31 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm AEST

How do you begin to bring Aboriginal people into your histories? Who do you approach, what do you ask, how do you negotiate custodianship and when do you pass authorship to Community? Join us for this panel with three historians who offer practical, political and personal histories of working with and for Aboriginal people. They will share tips, lessons and respectful approaches to help foster new skills and further our shared goals of reconciliation.

Moderated by Matt Poll from the Australian National Maritime Museum, our panel includes:

Dr Mariko Smith, curator of Unsettled at the Australian Museum
Dr Stephen Gapps, author of The Sydney Wars and Gudyarra: The First Wiradyuri War of Resistance
Professor Emerita Heather Goodall, author of numerous written and digital histories created with Indigenous people
$15 general admission

Informal drinks afterwards at the Pyrmont Bridge Hotel
