About this event

Carol Liston will discuss Liverpool’s colonial history and the forgotten souls buried in unmarked paupers’ graves from the former Liverpool Asylum.

Carol is an Adjunct Associate Professor at Western Sydney University. She holds a Ph.D. in 19th century Australian history from the University of Sydney. In 2021-22 she is president of the Royal Australian Historical Society and co-editor of its journal.

Her research covers early colonial history in New South Wales, with interests in people (convict, colonial born and free immigrant), local history, heritage, and the built environment. Her particular interest is the colonial development of the County of Cumberland.

Her publications include histories of Campbelltown, Parramatta and Liverpool, biographies of Sarah Wentworth, Thomas Brisbane and accounts of social life under Governor Macquarie and the convict women at the Female Factory, Parramatta.

An enthusiast for the use of archival resources and primary records as the basis for historical research and writing, she is excited by the increased availability of digital records, such as land records, and uses them in her local and family history research.
