While Bennelong is a name well known – the truth of the man is still misunderstood by many.
In her presentation, Professor Kate Fullagar aims to explore the truth of his history by presenting neglected evidence about his latter life. She will also compare the work of Bennelong to that of some of his contemporary First Nations negotiators in other parts of the Pacific.
Professor Kate Fullagar is a 2021 National Library of Australia Fellow.
This event will take place in the National Library Theatre and be livestreamed via the National Library's Facebook page.
