Wednesday 27th October – Bedlam at Botany Bay, Client Casual Catch Up Chat (VIA ZOOM)

October 27, 2021

Bedlam at Botany Bay with author & historian James Dunk (VIA ZOOM) 1:00pm-2:00pm

This is a story about freedom and possibilities, unraveling and collapse – and about what we can learn in the present from past experiences.
In the fledgling colony, social differences and legal distinctions faded as delusion and disorder took root. Ex-convicts and small settlers were exiled from their homes and living under the weight of imperial justice. They grappled with the country they were taking from its Indigenous inhabitants. Madness struck indiscriminately – and how did the strange colonial community respond? How did madness shape what was happening here, at what felt like the edge of the world?
Bedlam and Botany Bay has been shortlisted for numerous awards and was the winner of the Australian History Prize in the NSW Premier’s History Awards 2020.
