Healing history

Most of us would say we know Australia’s history. But the colonial stories we’re familiar with are highly selective. They reflect a single, whitewashed point of view. And Indigenous Australians’ voices and experiences are almost entirely absent.

This imbalance continues to present a significant barrier to reconciliation. The winds of change, however, are getting stronger; a recent Reconciliation Australia survey showed a large majority of Australians want to acknowledge what happened on our contested colonial frontiers.

In this NAIDOC Week presentation, a leading University of Adelaide researcher will bring some of our confronting history to light and consider how continued truth telling can help to heal centuries-old wounds.

The presenter

Professor Amanda Nettelbeck is a professor of history at the University of Adelaide and the Australian Catholic University’s Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences. She is a Fellow of both the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia and the Australian Academy of the Humanities, and won the Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society’s 2020 prize for legal history for her 2019 book Indigenous Rights and Colonial Subjecthood.
