Watch the ‘Ground Truth’s’ webinar, recorded by GML Heritage and Context, to mark History Week 2021.
Our four speakers presented topics that explored stories from the soil—delving into the underground of cemeteries and secret landscapes—and stories from the street, to illuminate lost voices and explore the social ferment of political movements.
Speakers and topics include:
Therese McCarthy’s experience of researching institutional archives has built a picture of the lives of women deserted by husbands and fathers in Colonial South Australia. Their experience drove the reform maintenance and divorce legislation from the ground up.
