August 18-19, 2017
La Trobe Art Institute 121 View Street, Bendigo

The Centre for the Study of the Inland and Tranforming Human Societies at La Trobe University says:

Please join us for an excursion into the rich and varied history of regional life. Turning our backs on the big cities, we consider how rural and urban communities in regional areas have important stories to tell about the environment, the economy, gender and urban culture. With contributions from scholars at La Trobe University, the Australian National University, Federation University, Monash University and Sheffield Hallam University (UK), we will present a range of fresh approaches to non-metropolitan histories. The symposium program is available here.

The symposium is free to attend but booking is essential as places are limited. To reserve your place, please email: [email protected]
