Description

Jo Henwood illustrated lecture : Places of Incarceration

The Australian colonies were largely established to deal with the social problems of over population, under employment and resultant crime in the way the British ruling classes found most efficient: institutionalisation. We can see the results to this day in the (mostly sandstone) edifices of prison, barracks, hospitals, orphanages, quarantine stations and asylums, all designed to deal with individuals en masse, to transform them from inconveniences to economic benefits, but their success is open to debate.
