UNSWriting: Rewriting the Nation: Minority women authors make history 

Australian minority women writers have been inventively engaged in rewriting and revisioining the history and culture of the white nation to include perspectives that have been ignored or obscured. Meet authors Roanna Gonsalves, Paula Abood and Maryam Azam in a conversation facilitated by historian and ABC journalist Kate Evans (The Bookshelf) as they discuss the challenges they face and the courage they show in changing what counts as Australian history.

Wednesday 3 October, 6:30pm
