Welcome to the GSV

Frontier Encounters between Europeans and and Aboriginals

 Registration is closed for this event

This talk has been re-scheduled from 7th May, and will be presented online via Zoom.

Guest Speaker: Dr Richard Broome
Dr Richard Broome tells the story of the impact of European ideas, guns, killer microbes and a pastoral economy on the networks of kinship, trade and cultures that various Aboriginal peoples of Victoria had developed over millennia. From first settlement to the present, he shows how Aboriginal families have coped with ongoing disruption and displacement, and how individuals and groups have challenged the system. With painful stories of personal loss as well as many successes, Dr Broome outlines how Aboriginal Victorians survived near decimation to become a vibrant community today.
Duration 1 hour.
RICHARD BROOME is a Professor of History and Associate at La Trobe University. One of Australia's most respected scholars of Aboriginal history, he has written many articles and books including Aboriginal Australians and Sideshow Alley.
