Translating European Culture to Colonial Melbourne: James Goold and his Legacies
February 17 @ 2:00 pm - February 18 @ 7:00 pm
This international conference celebrates the conclusion of an Australian Research Council Discovery Project on Archbishop Goold and his patronage. Hosted by the project’s research team, it brings a comparative dimension to our research with keynote contributions on the cultural visions of the Church in seventeenth-century Spain, in nineteenth-century Canada, and with Anglicanism in nineteenth-century Melbourne. It will present very recent research on religious orders in Australia, Goold’s patronage of contemporary artists, and the nineteenth architects who have contributed significant heritage buildings to the built environment of Melbourne and country Victoria.
