Title

Mediterranean diasporas and Australian settler colonialism

Date

6 November 2021

Abstract

This discussion reconsiders the history of migration from the Mediterranean region to Australia. It aims to discuss how migrant-cum-settlers from the Mediterranean displaced, interacted, engaged, and coexisted with Australia’s Indigenous peoples. Participants will discuss specific case studies that challenge conventional understandings of how migrants from Italy, Greece and Serbia interpreted and settled in Australia. The discussion will act as an opportunity to rethink how migration history and diaspora studies are interacting with settler colonial studies. It will also posit questions about the possibility of building on the points of intersection and dissension between these fields with the aim of opening possible future research directions that rethink migrant permanency and belonging.
