‘French Designs on Colonial NSW’ is François Péron’s Memoir on the English Settlements in New Holland, Van Diemen’s Land and the Archipelagos of the Great Pacific Ocean.

Transcribed and translated by Professor Jean Fornasiero and Professor John West-Sooby of The University of Adelaide, this book will add to the debates around the decision to found a settlement in Captain Cook’s ‘New South Wales’ and about the 19th-century expansionist aims of a number of European powers.

Come along to the Alliance for a meet ‘n greet with the translators, a short presentation of their book, followed by a Q&A and some great French wine and cheese. And in order to make this experience alive, books will be available for sale!
