Australia and the Language of Deep History at the Australian Embassy, Washington DC

ARC Laureate Fellow and Centre Director Professor Ann McGrath and Bidjara/Birri Gubba Juru woman, Honorary Professor and Senior Advisor at the Centre Professor Jackie Huggins will speak about the aims and outcomes of this nationally significant project on Australia’s deep human past. They will demonstrate some of the riches in the Marking Country website, a repository of living deep histories of the Australian continent, that showcases rock art, plant uses, ancient stories, and a current-day ceremony for babies – all told directly by Indigenous Australians. The new book, Everywhen: Australia and the Language of Deep History edited by Ann McGrath, Laura Rademaker and Jakelin Troy (University of Nebraska Press and New South Press) will also be featured.

In recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day (9 October), The Embassy of Australia in Washington DC invites you to a virtual AusTalk on Australia and the Language of Deep History
