Event Description

Full Description:
"History Speaks: Humanity’s Challenges” Public Lecture Series Presents:
Professor John Maynard (University of Newcastle) introduced by Michael Aird (University of Queensland).

The 1967 Referendum was a defining moment not just in Aboriginal history but in Australian history more generally. Within Aboriginal communities the euphoria of the 1967 Referendum result was overwhelming. But fifty years on it is difficult not to overlook the failure of successive Australian governments to take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity. Prof. Maynard’s discussion will look back across the past including the decade leading up to the Referendum and the five decades following the landslide result. What has changed for Aboriginal people? Where is the country today?

6.00 - 6.45pm: Refreshments & viewing of the exhibition, 'The Dust Never Settles', UQ Art Museum (#11)

7.00 - 8.30pm: Public Lecture, Room 212, Sir Llew Edwards Building (#14)
