What we do
We are a small group, slowly working our way through the history of this complex country. We are working in roughly chronological order and each month, one or two of our members lead a discussion – usually on a historical event or period. But we have also looked at broader topics such as language development, immigration and the relationship between State and Federal government. This last topic keeps cropping up as the background to many of the events that have taken place over the last several hundred years
American history is the subject of so many stories and films that we think we already understand what happened – but maybe the truth has got lost in the myths. For example, the session on Cowboys highlighted some common misrepresentations – if only in the clothing worn in so many of the films and TV programmes of our youth!
We await news about the availability of Abbot Hall Social Centre. Our programme of talks has been
suspended but can become active again rapidly.
