History Week Talk after the General Meeting
Order and Disorder: Madness in Penal New South Wales. Talk by James Dunk.
Madness was with the Europeans who colonised New South Wales from the start: sailors, convicts, soldiers, and free men and women.
This talk explores the strange ways the Colony dealt with madness: locking up convicts in an open gaol, because they were ill, and confining free colonists in a place where freedom was definitive. It charts the development of lunatic asylums and lunacy law within a climate of suspicion of illness, and the political sensitivity of madness in both convict and free populations. At the Museum.
November Saturday 25th 2pm
