Queen Victoria in the Colonies: Indigenous interpretations, ideas, interactions

On 9 & 10 December 2013, we will host an international symposium, bringing together scholars from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, southern Africa and the UK, to discuss ideas about Queen Victoria as an embodiment and symbol of the British crown within colonial contexts. Particular emphasis will be given to histories of Indigenous people's interpretations of and interactions with the monarch. Speakers include Professor Sarah Carter, Professor Michael Belgrave, Professor Barbara Caine, Professor Neil Parsons, Professor Amanda Nettelbeck, Dr Stacey Loyer, Dr Penelope Edmonds, Dr Miranda Johnson, Dr Maria Nugent and others. We are looking forward to a rich trans-colonial and interdisciplinary conversation on this important theme.

For information, and if you would like to attend, please contact maria.nugent@anu.edu.au
