What was a convict? 27 November What did transportation mean to the men and women who went through it? This talk, fittingly held at the Port Arthur Historic Site, will delve into the policy of transportation in its legal and punitive context. Alan Brooks, from the University of Tasmania, seeks to explore the ways in which authorities here in the fledgling penal colonies imposed old processes, and devised new ones, and will consider how these transported processes operated. It is sure to be an insightful session on how the policies of transportation and convictism were experienced. Visit www.portarthur.org.au Inside History | Nov-Dec 2013 | 19
