Book Launch: Vandemonians


Please note: This is an online event.

Join us for the launch of Janet McCalman’s Vandemonians: The Repressed History of Colonial Victoria.

Built on a community genealogy project with volunteers from all over Australia and overseas, the book reconstructs the history of Tasmania’s convict settlers and their lives in Victoria, offering a rich study of the lives of these unwilling colonisers, and an original and confronting new history of our convict past - the repressed history of colonial Victoria.

Professor Graeme Davison, Emeritus Sir John Monash Distinguished Professor of History at Monash University, will launch the book.
