For our last meeting for 2018 we have the pleasure of workshopping Dr Karen Fox’s upcoming conference paper ‘Gender, Fame, and the Politics of the Past: Unsettling the Heroic in Australia’s History’. Dr Fox will be presenting this paper at the International Australian Studies Association in December and will be very grateful for comment. We will meet at Fellows Bar (outside if the weather allows).
