State Library of Queensland says
Like much of Australia during the years of the First World War, Queensland was a divided society. Debates about conscription, the evolving role of women, and the growing number of broken families characterised a state that was struggling to cope with rapid systemic change.

Symposium facilitator Ian Townsend, author and journalist, will lead a full day of presentations on the social challenges Queensland experienced during the First World War.

Join us the evening prior for the keynote address from leading war historian and keynote speaker Professor Joan Beaumont, discussing the experience of war by those at home.
