Feminism through Narrative Nonfiction: Liz Conor, Clare Wright and Serpil Senelmis

Listen to the podcast of FWF16: Feminism through Narrative Nonfiction.

Historians Clare Wright and Liz Conor speak about how they approach history as feminists. What are the challenges and joys of questioning popular understandings of Australian history? A discussion of the power of narrative non-fiction to shine a spotlight on women otherwise ignored by the ‘great man’ approach to history; of how women are being and need to be written back into history.

‘Print is, before radio, our principal medium for building shared understandings and consensus.’ –Liz Conor
