Join David B. Jones for a tour of the Map Collection in conjunction with the exhibition, Plotting the Island: dreams, discovery and disaster.
This exhibition navigates real and imagined voyages in the exploration of Australia. While Indigenous inhabitants had a deep connection to this island, in the Western mind it was shrouded in mystery and opportunity for territorial expansion. Plotting the Island strives to study the changing identities of Australia and islands as a result of European exploration.
Date: 12-1pm, Thursday 18 May 2017
Venue: Map Collection, ERC, The University of Melbourne, Melbourne
