If you are in Melbourne: September 29, 2016, Readings Carlton: Launch of Patrick Wolfe’s Traces of History

22Sep16
You are warmly invited to the launch of historian Patrick Wolfe’s last published book, Traces of History: Elementary Structures of Race (Verso: 2016).
As many of you will know, Patrick died suddenly in February this year and we want to use this occasion to honour his extraordinary contribution to historical scholarship, his foundational role in the folourishing field of settler colonial studies and his special place in the lives of many, as father, friend, colleague, teacher, mentor, activist. Associate professor Tracey Banivanua Mar (La Trobe University) will be launching the book, with Professor Gary Foley (Victoria University) discussing Patrick’s contribution to Aboriginal history. Author Tony Birch will be the MC for this special event.

Entry is free, but RSVPs are necessary as we expect a lot of interest in this event. Numbers are capped at 120 and RSVPs close Monday 26th September or when we reach capacity.

Please send RSVPs to: tracesofhistorybooklaunch@gmail.com
