Upcoming events

Policing a Colonial Metropolis: from Moreton Bay to Brisbane

Date: 14 July 2017
Time: 10.30 am – 11.30 am
Location: Queensland State Archives Lecture Theatres 1 and 2
Details: Queensland State Archives with the Griffith University Harry Gentle Resource Centre are proud to present this event as part of the 2017 Visiting Fellows Seminar Series.

Join us at Queensland State Archives to hear our guest speaker, Griffith University Visiting Fellow Dr Anastasia Dukova, illuminate the key aspects of town life and policing of today’s Brisbane in its transition years, from the arrival of the first immigrant ships in Moreton Bay settlement in the 1840s, to the establishment of Brisbane as a colonial capital in 1859.

Utilising an array of primary records, Dr Dukova will examine the challenges the nascent colonial town policemen faced, also known as foot policemen. What was their day, or night, ‘on the job’ like? Who were these men?

Please book early through Eventbrite to reserve your place.
