A big day out for history buffs

CDU history researchers will join specialists from other Australian universities and the Professional Historians Association (NT) in a series of discussion panels at the 2017 Annual History Colloquium. 

The event will be held at the Northern Territory Library, Parliament House, on Saturday, 21 October.

Nursing Museum curator Janie Mason and senior lecturer in Business Dr Susan Bandias will talk about their book, “Life in Radio Land – Stories from the bush before the mobile phone”, which was launched in September.

Dr Dino Hodge, of Menzies School of Health Research, will examine “Colonised Sexuality and Gender”.

PhD candidate Norman Cramp will reveal insights into Northern Territory diggers’ contributions during WWI in “A Few Who Survived: Three Territorians of the Great War”.

And World War II will be relived through the lens of PhD candidate Craig Bellamy’s “Allied Air Force Scoreboards in the Top End in the Pacific War”.

Across four sessions between 8.30am and 4.30pm these and other fascinating historical perspectives will be dissected by those who have spent decades peeling away the layers of time.

Entry is free and morning and afternoon tea is provided. For further information contact Dr Steven Farram on T: 8946 6865 or E:
