The Library, in collaboration with Western Sydney University is pleased to present, The Retrospect: a Symposium on Australian Women’s Writing.
Residing in the shadow of Henry Lawson, Banjo Patterson and a largely masculine literary tradition are the fascinating lives and culturally significant outputs of Australia’s often forgotten nineteenth-century women writers.
Hosted by Anne Jamison, this symposium brings together leading academic scholars and award-winning writers from across Australia to discuss and explore the diverse and remarkable contributions of nineteenth-century Australian women’s writing.
When: Thursday, 3 November 2016 – 1pm to 7.30pm
Where: Dixson Room, State Library of New South Wales
Register: This is a free event but places are limited and registration is required. To register, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
