The Geoffrey Bolton lecture is an annual event held by the State Records Office of Western Australia, designed to ask the big questions of archives and of history. The event is named in honour of Emeritus Professor Geoffrey Bolton, Vice-Chancellor of Murdoch University.
This year's lecture, "Manufacturing Memory: history, archives and history wars", will be presented by Professor Peter Edwards. Professor Edwards is a Visiting Professor at the University of New South Wales, Australian Defence Force Academy, and the author of "Arthur Tange: the last Mandarin." The book won the History Award in this year's Queensland Premier's Literary Award, and was described by the judges as "a beautifully crafted book, well presented and clearly written... based on voluminous and careful research."
The lecture will be held on Wednesday, 8 November at 6pm at the Government House Ballroom. Please contact 08 9427 3360 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your attendance.
