    Project Details

    Description

    A study of the impact of British democrats and radicals on the political, social and cultural development of the Australian colonies. Through individual and collective case studies that explore the migrant experience in both Britain and Australia, the study will contribute to our understanding of the complex political culture of Australia in the second half of the nineteenth century, as well as to the much neglected history of Chartism in decline. Using both Australian and British sources it will culminate in a comprehensive re-evaluation of the origins of Australian democracy.
