Italians in 19th century Western Australia, and, how a Venetian industrial chemist came from Kalgoorlie to teach Italian at The University of Western Australia : Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of Italian Studies at UWA Other events...
Speaker: Associate Professor John Kinder, Italian Studies, UWA

Italians migrated to Western Australia from the earliest days of European settlement. They were a fascinating and mixed assortment of individuals who contributed to the dynamic cultural diversity of early Western Australia. Against this background, the lecture will trace how Italian became a university subject in the 1920s – at the Universities of Sydney and Melbourne and, before them, at The University of Western Australia.
