Unlikely friendships

Will Christie has offered a selection of letters from Francis Jeffrey to Thomas Carlyle for us to read. I am also circulating a related article of Will’s for those who wish to do some extra reading in preparation for the meeting.

Andrew Yip will also be bringing some slides along on the day, and will talk about representations of Turkish/Australian friendships and Gallipoli.
