About the Event

The Evatt Foundation proudly presents:

A conversation between Mick Dodson & Henry Reynolds

Professor Mick Dodson is co-chair of Reconciliation Australia and the 2009 Australian of the Year. In his speech to the National Press Club in April 2009, he challenged the notion of practical versus symbolic reconciliation: "I want to do my best to put an end to the misguided notion that reconciliation comes in two discrete and opposing forms - practical, meaning worthwhile and effective; and symbolic, meaning near enough to worthless".

Professor Henry Reynolds is an eminent Australian historian whose primary work has focused on the frontier conflict between European settlement and indigenous Australians. His latest book, co-authored with Marilyn Lake, Drawing the Global Colour Line (MUP), won the 2009 Prime Minister's Literary Award for non-fiction and has been hailed as a model for the new global history
