PhD Scholarship: 'How Meston's 'Wild Australia Show' Shaped Australian Aboriginal History', UQ School of Architecture

The School of Architecture at the University of Queensland invites applications for the following research project: "How Meston's 'Wild Australia Show' Shaped Australian Aboriginal History" The Wild Australia Show (1892-93), staged by a diverse company of Aboriginal people for metropolitan audiences, provides the focus for an interdisciplinary study of performance, photography, collections, frontier environments and race relations in colonial Australia. Using archival and visual records, and in partnership with key cultural institutions and Indigenous communities, the research seeks to produce an authoritative and original interpretation of the Show situating it within local, national and transnational narratives informed by contemporary Indigenous perspectives. It aims to illuminate Aboriginal agency in the ensemble, reconnect Aboriginal kin to performers, and chart changing concepts of race at a critical juncture in Australian history. Students with backgrounds in history, architecture, anthropology and related disciplines are encouraged to apply. Professor Paul Memmott is the Chief Investigator (p.memmott@uq.edu.au) .
