AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In his keynote speech at the 2014 National Play Festival, playwright Andrew Bovell described the troubled relationship between Australia's past and its representation:

[T]he 'History Wars' is one of our great national themes, one of the most volatile fault lines in our society. At one end of the argument the story is told of a peaceful and gradual settlement, a noble and benign act of nation building and at the other end, a story of violent occupation and resistance culminating in massacre and genocide.'
