Permanent URI for this collection

The focus of this symposium was intended to convey the themes of cultural identity and ethnicity which are the focus of the scholars involved, while also indicating their interest in migration and movement. The research interests of the group include Irish, Scottish, German, Celtic, Italian, French, and Greek identities and migrations.

Professor Ros Pesman (Challis Chair in History, University of Sydney) and Dr James Jupp (Director of the Centre for Immigration and Multicultural Studies in the Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University) were the symposium's special guests.

This event was planned as a working symposium, in which everyone took an active part in discussion works in progress.
