Royal Australian Historical Society event - RAHS/WEA Lecture

History with a Difference: Researching and Writing Thematic History with a Local Focus

Taking a thematic approach, Paul Convy will discuss the history of Lebanese immigration to Australia and the contributions made by the Lebanese, in common with all immigrants to New South Wales, to our local and national cultural landscape. Using the major themes of Lebanese settlement in NSW from the 1880s: migration; commerce and labour; rural and urban settlement; religion; leisure and social institutions; and civic affairs, Paul will then discuss the project to research and write Lebanese Settlement in New South Wales: A Thematic History.
