Cooking the books of genocide in Australia

Workshop as part of Emergenc(i)es

Cooking the books of genocide in Australia: food, feminism and colonisation - Shannon Woodcock

In this interactive history workshop, we time travel to meet colonial Australia’s first cook book writer - Mina Rawson. We will watch Mina arrive on the beautiful shores of Butchulla country, with her gun, her Pacific Islander slaves, her husband, and her dreams of making money in global capitalist networks through conquering the land and together analyse what our reactions to her actions can tell us about how we eat and live today. Are the margins of time, violence and the colonies at the dinner table with us still? What might it mean to kick colonisation out of the kitchen? A gentle and provocative engagement with how history can affect and inform us today.

Part of  Emergenc(i)es  Exhibition, 6th - 17th June: Control and Calculation : Inheriting Liberation : Improvised Publics
