In 1874, John Forrest led an expedition on a 2,700 mile crossing of Australia’s Western Desert. This lecture re-examines the expedition from the perspective of those through whose country it passed, and its place in British imperial history.
Given the current public health advice, we have made the difficult decision that our Monday night lecture programme will continue to be presented online for the autumn term. We understand this will be disappointing news, but the safety of our Fellows, members, visitors and staff comes first.
This lecture will be streamed online here. You will need to log into the website to view the content. You can pause and rewind the content, as well as watch at a later time.
There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions to the speaker throughout the event, until 7.45pm.
Monday night lectures are open to Fellows and members and are included in the cost of membership.
