Rum: A Distilled History of Colonial Australia (VIA ZOOM) 1:00pm-2:00pm

Could the Rum Rebellion have been averted if Major Johnston wasn’t hungover? Would the Eureka Stockade have been different if the rebels weren’t p*ssed? How were prisoners to get drunk if Macquarie closed the only pub in the gaol? These are just some of the questions raised in Matt Murphy’s account of Australia’s colonial history. Brimming with detailed research and irreverent character sketches, Rum looks at not just how much was drunk in colonial Australia (a lot!), but also the lengths people went to get their hands on it, the futile efforts of the early governors to control it, and the often disastrous and/or absurd consequences of its consumption.
