Journeys: A Seminar

Saturday 5 November 2011
Old Sunday School, Orphan School and St John's Precinct, New Town, TAS
A sentence of transportation became a sentence to travel as convict women journeyed from their places of trial across the world to Van Diemen's Land. Many had made significant journeys before their arrestts. After they arrived in Hobart Town, many travelled about the colony while they were under sentence. Once they were free to move where they liked, the emancipated women often set off yet again for somewhere new.

The seminar explored these journeys.

Session 1—The Voyage Out
Session 2—People on the Voyage Out

Session 3—Journeys Through Life
