Thesis title: Letters, Books, Parroquates and Kangaroo Skins: An Anti-Ekphrastic Response to the Correspondence of First Fleet Convict Matthew Everingham (1768-1817)

Supervisors: Adam GECZY

Thesis abstract:

Matthew Everingham, a first fleet convict and former attorney's clerk, made one of the earliest attempts by a British citizen to cross the Blue Mountains. In recounting his experiences to his patron in London, the Attorney Samuel Shepherd (later Attorney General), Everingham drew on Eighteenth Century poetry and Enlightenment sensibilities. This research project which includes a studio component provides an anti-ekphrastic response to Everingham's correspondence and asks how can I, as his 4x great-granddaughter, bring his eye witness accounts into the contemporary?
