Deep Conversations: Restoration, Recovery and Repair

Part I: Repatriation

Amid a climate of crisis and ‘unprecedented times’, moments of destruction and devastation are intertwined with those of respite and renewal. By exploring these moments—their mechanisms and tensions—scholars can produce new insights into our past, present and potential futures.  

Deep Conversations: History, Environment, Science series is a partnership of the Research Centre for Deep History and the Centre for Environmental History. It aims to bring together scholars from diverse disciplines to discuss questions of history, science and the environment, and how they shed light on the global challenges we face today.  

Speakers: Dr Maria Nugent (Australian National University), Dr Hilary Howes (Australian National University), Dr Amber Aranui (Victoria University Wellington), Dr Michael Pickering (National Museum of Australia).

This will be a hybrid event and will take place in person and via Zoom.
