Reese Lecture 2017: Heart, Power, Treaty, Truth: Affective, political performances in (post) Reconciliation Australia
Associate Professor Penelope Edmonds delivered the prestigious annual Reese Lecture at the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies, King's College London. Penny's lecture explored the recent "Uluru Statement from the Heart", and used it to take the long view on Indigenous/settler relations in Australia and the hopes for an emancipatory politics. Timely and historically rooted, Penny's lecture set the template for eagerly anticipated future debates.
