Book Release and Review, Monumental Disruptions (2023)

Published on 20 February 2023, Bronwyn Carlson and Terri Farrelly’s book Monumental Disruptions: Aboriginal People and Colonial Commemorations in So-Called Australia (Canberra: Aboriginal Studies Press, 2023) asks what place colonial memorials have in contemporary Australia: Do we remove, destroy or amend? Monumental Disruptions investigates how these memorials have been viewed, and are viewed, by First Nations people to find a way forward. It has been reviewed by AHA member Nikolas Orr in Patterns of Prejudice and is available for purchase online at AIATSIS.
