Writers on Campus is a program of conversations, panels and events celebrating writers at La Trobe.
The series will provide a space for student writers of all levels to get together, support and broaden their learning.
Join us for our next panel discussion – Writing the past
‘Good history is a high-wire gravity-defying act of balance and grace,’ Tom Griffiths wrote recently, describing historians as writers who, ‘have to forsake their own world for a period – and then, somehow, find their way back.’
In our first session of Writers on Campus for 2023, we speak with two historians who are adept at walking that high-wire and at time travel. Come hear two of La Trobe’s most acclaimed historians, Judith Brett and Katie Holmes, discuss why they do what they do and how they approach the work and craft of making history, in conversation with Kelly Gardiner.
When: Wednesday 29 March, 12.30pm – 1.30pm
Where: Bundoora Library, Level 1, Seminar Room 1.34
Please register as spaces are limited.
