People and Place in Sydney’s Past

Dixson Room, State Library of NSW, 23-24 August 2012

Keynote speaker: Grace Karskens

By bringing together academics, postgraduate students and professional historians engaged with the history of Sydney and its suburbs, ‘From the Ground Up’ offers an opportunity to explore the complexity of the city’s past, and to consider how we might rethink the history of cities, and Sydney in particular.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Department of Modern History, Politics and International Relations, Macquarie University, the State Library of New South Wales and the Dictionary of Sydney.
