Neilson Hays Bangkok Literature Festival - The Democracy Trilogy

  • Neilson Hays Library 195 Thanon Surawong Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, 10500 Thailand (map)

Clare Wright will represent Australian literature and history at the inaugural Neilson Hays Bangkok Literature Festival.

What is lost when half of history is erased? Would our understanding of the world be different if history was told from the perspective of women? Clare Wright answers these questions and more in her Democracy Trilogy, which to date includes You Daughters of Freedom and The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka. She rewinds the tape of time to shine a light on two of Australia’s important fights for democracy–the women’s suffrage movement and the Eureka Rebellion–told from the vantage point of women. She’ll address the importance of crafting strong representations of more than just men, and the importance of including minority voices in the historical record. ENG w/ THAI TRANS.
