White Australia has a Black History Other events...
The 2020 Tom Stannage Memorial Lecture by Professor John Maynard, Chair of Aboriginal History, University of Newcastle and Director, Purai Global Indigenous History Centre.

White Australia has a Black History - a powerful slogan first brought to national attention by the late great Aboriginal activist Rob Riley with a 1987 brochure for NAIDOC week. Tom Stannage whose memory is honoured through this lecture felt the long entrenched celebratory history of discoverers, explorers and settlers was a flawed history because it had ‘very little to say about Aborigines.’

This lecture will examine the Aboriginal voice over many decades challenging understandings and interpretations of Australia’s past since 1788.

The lecture will be chaired by UWA Professor Jane Lydon, Wesfarmers Chair in Australian History.

Professor John Maynard is a Worimi Aboriginal man from the Port Stephens region of New South Wales. He is currently Chair of Aboriginal History at the University of Newcastle and Director of the Purai Global Indigenous History Centre. He has held several major positions and served on numerous prominent organizations and committees, including Deputy Chairperson of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), Executive Committee of the Australian Historical Association, New South Wales History Council, Indigenous Higher Education Advisory Council (IHEAC), Australian Research Council College of Experts, National Indigenous Research and Knowledge Network (NIRAKN) and a Fulbright Ambassador.
