23 May: Law Week Walk – The Convict Taint
An estimated one in five Australians has convict ancestry. In Tasmania, the figure is even higher. In 2009, 74% of Tasmania’s population was estimated to be descended from convicts.
In the 1950s and ‘60s, historians argued that Australians should not romanticise either the convict system or the people within it.
We will be asking you if you agree with this when we visit the graves of former convicts who survived transportation, the road gangs to be teased, insulted and prodded, their masters and the brutal punishment of the lash.
Their life and the crimes they committed while serving their sentence and their behavior after being freed are for you to judge. You the Jury will be asked if they made worthwhile citizens or were they just ner’er do well raggle-taggle nobodies.
