AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Great Court of The University of Queensland at St Lucia is an everyday agora for students, staff and visitors, and a fondly-appreciated public space. Built and branded to underscore commitment to the development of Queensland's tertiary educational system, to secure the University's entry onto the list of elite "sandstone universities" dotted across Australia, and to create an iconic symbol of UQ's presence,1 (Moore, 19) the Great Court is lovely on a breezy, late spring afternoon, but it is by no means a neutral space/territory for everyone: the St Lucia campus is built upon Jagera and Turrbal country.'
