Clare Wright‘, ABC News 24 One-plus-One, 24 April 2015 (video only)

Historian Clare Wright talks with Jane Hutcheon about her early life, her early work on women in the liquor industry, her Stella Prize-winning book The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka, young people learning history, the role of historians and her admiration for early feminist and suffragist, Vida Goldstein.

She also refers to the risk that an overblown Anzac narrative will drive out other strands of our history and the implications of letting the ‘national character’ be defined purely in military terms – essentially, that it means the nation has to keep finding wars to take part in. Clare Wright is one of Honest History’s distinguished supporters.
