‘Four history reads for a wet weekend, including Henry Reynolds on Australia Day and wrapping ourselves in the flag’, Honest History, 6 February 2021

Forty millimetres of rain overnight at HH HQ in Canberra, and there may be more to come. We found these articles recently, covering subjects from how we work Covid-19 into the collection of national narratives to a piece on statues and what they disclose. Plus Henry Reynolds on pseudo-nationalism and Phil Cashen’s deep dive into something Australia has always done well – sectarianism, in this case in Gippsland just after the Great War.
