Injustice, Survival, Memory 2022 conference

The ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences, Humanities Research Centre and School of History presents

Injustice, Survival, Memory: Marking 80 years since the Dunera and Queen Mary internees arrived in Australia

This special three-day event will host a range of speakers from Australia and abroad who will consider a broad range of histories and experiences on the themes of injustice, survival, memory, including those of First Nations peoples, and refugee groups who have sought safe haven in Australia. Marking the 80th anniversary of the arrival of the Dunera and Queen Mary internees in Australia, the conference explores the role of injustice as a historical force and the memories of people who have survived persecution.

The conference will be held in person on the lands of the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples, at the ANU campus (RSSS Building, 146 Ellery crescent), from September 6-8, 2022.

The conference is open to the public, but registrations are required.
