  • Carriageworks 245 Wilson Street Eveleigh, NSW, 2015 Australia (map)

Breaking open Australia’s foundation myths, Clare Wright’s research offers a timely corrective to exclusively male-told accounts of key historical moments. Author of the Stella Prize-winning The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka and You Daughters of Freedom, Clare has worked as an academic, political speechwriter, historical consultant, and radio and television broadcaster. In conversation with historian Anna Clark, Clare shares her passion for uncovering stories within historical silence, gives a fresh perspective on primary sources and explains how she goes about filling the gaps in the national narrative.
