Event description

Description

An author talk with Dr Paul Irish, who has conclusively debunked the assumption that the aboriginal people of Sydney’s coastal areas ‘died out,’ or drifted away soon after European settlement.

In his 2017 publication Hidden in plain view, he re-creates the world of the ‘affiliated coastal zone’ with its ‘entanglements,’ as the lives of colonists and traditional owners variously intersected and ran parallel within the same localities.

Paul recounts this history through the lives of the individuals who made it, and offers an opening to view Sydney’s heritage from a fresh perspective.
