Global Encounters & First Nations Peoples

Global Encounters & First Nations Peoples

Global Encounters & First Nations Peoples: 1000 Years of Australian History explores encounters between Australia’s Indigenous peoples and voyagers from the sea over the period of a millennium.

The project will innovatively reconstruct Australia’s role in global exploration, creating a new trans-disciplinary intellectual school with the potential to recast Australia’s history, national identity, and place in the world, impacting ongoing debates over Australia’s national identity and the urgent need for reconciliation with our first peoples.
