About this Event

Molly Morgan is recognised as a founding pioneer settler of the Maitland District, yet she is a woman oft maligned. This presentation analyses the sexualisation, objectification and stereotyping that surrounds Molly and suggests reasons for its evolution and prevalence.

Narissa Phelps has spent the last forty years following her passion for history and genealogy, her thesis examines the role of sixty-one convict women to settler colonialism and their transition from convict to settler.
