Australian Literature 101: Watkin Tench: A Narrative of the Expedition to Botany Bay
Who tells the story of a country? What story does a country’s national literature tell about its people and its identity? Is there such a thing as Australian literature at all? In the debut event of our Australian Literature 101 series, we begin to explore these questions through 1788: A Narrative of the Expedition to Botany Bay by Watkin Tench. Host Ramona Koval is joined by Wheeler Centre director Michael Williams.
