The Reception of Greek Tragedy in Australia: 1858 to the Present

Speaker: Dr. Paul Monaghan

When the first British colonizers arrived in Australia in the late 18th Century, they brought with them not only a fully formed class system and a crush of convicts, but a set of educational and cultural values and models based in the elite study of Ancient Greece and Rome. Greek tragedy, in this context, had become as English as cricket. In this brief talk I report on my long-term research project examining the “reception” of Greek tragedy in Australia from British colonization up to the present day. This “cultural history” project focuses specifically on productions and adaptations of Greek tragedy within the context of Australia’s cultural development from a remote colonial outpost of the British Empire to an independent nation with its own unique blend of cultural influences from all around the world.
