The 2018 Eldershaw Lecture will be given by Professor Geoffrey Blainey, one of Australia’s most distinguished and prolific historians. Professor Blainey’s books are too numerous to mention, but include classics like The Tyranny of Distance and Triumph of the Nomads. The Eldershaw Lecture provides a wonderful opportunity to hear Professor Blainey’s mature reflections on Australia’s past (including Tasmania!). The Eldershaw Lecture will be held at the Dechaineux Theatre, Art School, Hunter Street at 8.00 pm on Tuesday 9 October. All welcome. Please arrive no later than 7.50 pm.
