HCSA Annual Regional lecture and Oral History seminar – Whyalla 16 November

/ October 27, 2023/ Featured, Special event

The History Council of SA is hosting two events in Whyalla on the 16th November as part of its annual regional lecture program. Details are below.

11am to 12.30pm

Dr Skye Krichauff, University of Adelaide

Lecture: Uncovering and Understanding the South Australian Frontier and its Legacies

The research project ‘The South Australian Frontier and its Legacies’ maps the nature and extent of conflict between Aboriginal people and colonists in South Australia, from the arrival of sealers and whalers (in the early 1800s) until Federation (1901). The project is based at the University of Adelaide and emerged out of the call from the Uluru Statement from the Heart to engage in ‘truth-telling about our history’. Research for the project has involved an extensive examination of archival sources and the collection of oral histories from Aboriginal people and settler descendants. Dr Skye Krichauff will demonstrate the website and interactive digital ‘Story map’ developed by the project team. She will focus on Eyre Peninsula and explain why violence in this district was exceptionally long lasting and extensive.
