BISHOP JAMES GOOLD: INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
Wednesday 14 to Friday 16 February
University of Melbourne, Parkville and Cardinal Knox Centre, East Melbourne

This international symposium is part of an Australian Research Council Discovery Project examining the patronage of Melbourne’s first Catholic Bishop James Goold. Investigating Goold’s contribution to the cultural environment of colonial Melbourne, the project’s three themes will be contextualised over three days. Sessions will be devoted to the Bishop’s important Baroque painting collection, his colonial library and his patronage of the British architect William Wilkinson Wardell, and its imprint on the built environment of Melbourne. Keynote lectures by international scholars from Berlin, Aberdeen, Hong Kong and Rome will be augmented by Australian scholars Dr Catherine Kovesi (University of Melbourne), Assoc. Prof. Ursula De Jong (Deakin University) and Prof. Jaynie Anderson (University of Melbourne).
