Harry Gentle was a Griffith University alumnus who studied politics and history in the 1980s in the Griffith School of Humanities. He left a generous bequest upon his death to support the ongoing study of Australian history to the 1850s.
We seek one or two highly motivated undergraduate students enrolling in a Griffith University Honours program to join the research team of the newly established Harry Gentle Resource Centre at Griffith University. The Centre is developing a portal of research dedicated to the study of Australian history to the 1850s with an initial focus on the territory that became Queensland. We are exploring innovative approaches in digital humanities to documenting, representing and interpreting that history to 1859.
The period up to 1859 represents an era of intercultural encounters. Our aim is to offer a portal of interactive resources, research publications, commentaries and research aids to facilitate access to published and unpublished information for the period up to 1859 representing an era of intercultural encounters. We seek to document particularly the lives and experiences of those persons, groups and organisations that have not been the subject of historical investigation. We aim to collate an inventory of the diverse people, groups and claims on country that made up the early colonial period, including Indigenous diplomats, resisters, interpreters and guides, convicts and free-born, shipwrecks and settlers, religious and military – the whole range of contributors to a new era.
The results of research conducted with assistance from the Harry Gentle bequest will be hosted on the Resource Centre's portal.
