Special Women, Special Times.

Guest Speaker: Dr Katie McConnel


Some people are well known in historical circles - some people deserve to be well known and when their history is examined we wonder why these people are not house hold names.

Dr Katie McConnel is a passionate advocate for history and is the historian and curator for Old Government House, Queensland. As such she is responsible for the ongoing research and development of the various museum displays that tell the stories of the House and the people who lived and worked there. Through her exhibitions, writing, tours and public talks she makes the remarkable lives of 19th century women more broadly accessible and captivating to her listeners and readers.
