Corals and cannibals on the voyage of the Fly
4 July 2012
Celebrated historian, Professor Iain McCalman, from the Department of History, talks about the work of the scientists and artists of HMS Fly (1842-45).
Like many Europeans who voyaged through the Torres Strait in the 19th century, HMS Fly's scientists, officers and artists were enthralled with the dynamic culture of the islanders and Aboriginal people they met.
Professor McCalman is a Professional Research Fellow and Australian Research Council Federation Fellow.
