Quarantine: History, Heritage, Place. An international conference convened by historians, archaeologists and heritage scholars at the University of Sydney
This international conference builds from a large multidisciplinary investigation of more than 1,000 sandstone inscriptions that cover the stunning Quarantine Station in Sydney, Australia. This unique site will form our venue for the conference, inspiring themes that are both local and global: mark-making, isolation, identity, and place.
