I want to reflect on a few ideas about 19th century Tasmanian history, framed within the themes of this Festival –identity, landscape and even, DNA. ‘…Tasmania’ – in the words of English writer, Nicholas Shakespeare – ‘is a byword for remoteness…it is like outer space on earth and invoked by those at the ‘centre’ to stand for all that is far-flung, strange and unverifiable’.
