Recently Dr. Peter Brett presented an illustrated talk at Clarendon House, Evandale as part of the Tasmanian Heritage Festival. He shared educational resources created to support school visits to Runnymede House and the Hobart Penitentiary Chapel Historic Chapel site (Hobart) and Home Hill (Devonport). It was great to see supportive colleagues in the audience. Professor John Williamson was kind enough in a testimonial to describe the presentation as "an excellent demonstration of how 'Place' can provide a focus for deep historical thinking".

Peter is keen to share his work with a wider Faculty and University audience and will provide a repeat session to with lots of pictures and a guarantee that you will learn about some facets of Tasmanian history and some history education possibilities that you haven't heard about before!  Relaxed and conversational.
