Histories of Immigration and Refuge: A Panel Discussion

Join MUP author and historian Dr Alexandra Dellios as she talks the hidden stories and behind-the-scenes decisions in Australian refugee history. She will be in conversation with Dr Jayne Persian and Dr Claire Higgins, and the event will be chaired by Professor Frank Bongiorno, ANU.

Spanning the resettlement of the Displaced Persons who built post-war Australia, to the arrival of Vietnamese asylum seekers by boat and the introduction of mandatory detention, the panel will show how historical research is essential to understanding Australia’s treatment of refugees today.

Tickets are $12, book here. Includes a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink and post-event nibbles (and more wine).
