Event description

Description

The annual NTEU Lecture offers a public forum for an eminent Australian to present unique perspectives on aspects of higher education and its impact on the economic, social and cultural frameworks of Australian society. The 2018 NTEU Lecturer is Professor Lyndall Ryan from the University of Newcastle.

This year marks significant anniversaries of two of the best known frontier massacres in Australia: the 80th anniversary of the Myall Creek massacre of 1838; and the 90th anniversary of the Coniston massacre of 1928. What happened on the colonial frontier in the intervening 90 years? Were these incidents typical of the time? How can we know? The release of stage 2 of the interactive map of frontier massacre sites in Central and Eastern Australia to 1930 enables us to engage with the questions in considerable detail.

Professor Ryan will demonstrate the scale and extent of frontier massacre and show how they were responsible for the deaths of many thousands of Aboriginal people. She will then consider the map as an example of truth telling and how it is a critical part of the process of reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians.

Pre-Lecture drinks from 5.30pm. Lecture 6.15pm to 7.30pm.
