Event description

Description

Presented by eminent historian,

Henry Reynolds

The debate over Australia Day is playing out in council chambers across the country, with the Hobart City Council among those formally supporting the campaign to change the date.

This public lecture explores the confusion among many Australians about the reason January 26 was chosen in the first place and outlines historical arguments for changing the date.

Professor Henry Reynolds is an eminent historian, best-selling author and public commentator. In 1998 Professor Reynolds was elected as one of the National Trust’s 100 National Living Treasures, in 2000 he was named as Australian Humanist of the Year, and he was the 2015 Tasmanian Senior Citizen of the Year.
