Join independent researcher, Jan Hasselberg, to hear about his project to locate historical photo collections of New Guinea (Papua New Guinea and West Papua, 1875-1940) in archives, libraries and museums around the world, and to compile a list of these collections for researchers, including New Guineans looking for links to their history.
Jan will also discuss what is special and unique about historical photos from New Guinea, why he is so committed to unearthing these collections and his efforts to share his findings with source communities. Jan will also show examples of photos he has found in his search.Jan’s presentation will be followed with Q&A, then afternoon tea in the Hedley Bull atrium.
