Are Australia's First People the Foundation to Our National Identity?

Free

On the eve of International Women's Day, the prominent Elder of the Wergaia people and Wamba Wamba descendant, Eleanor Bourke will share her perspective on our most recent shared cultural history and how this has influenced our collective notion of the Australian cultural identity. In a time when Australia is struggling with its national cultural identity, a better resolution will come from true recognition of the role of Australia’s First People in our society.
This Open Mind Lecture is in memory of Geelong Regional Libraries staff member, Fiona Baranowski.

Paul Ham - New Jerusalem

Who is to say that your God is not the true God? The questions raised by Paul Ham in New Jerusalem go to the heart of the meaning of faith - not just for Christianity, but for all religions. New Jerusalem is a story of religious obsession and persecution, of noble ideals trampled to dust, of slavish sexual surrender.

Paul Ham is a former Sunday Times correspondent, with a Master's Degree in Economic History from the London School of Economics. He is now an award-winning and best -selling history writer.
