    What makes a nation?

    These days with globalisation, open borders and mass movement of people, where do nations begin and end? What makes us Australian? How do we resolve the tension at the heart of Australia - invasion and dispossession and the continued failure to recognise indigenous people's place in the nation?  

    Stan Grant, a Wiradjuri man, has been a journalist for three decades.  He has worked across all major Australian television networks and written for many of Australia’s most influential publications. Stan has been a foreign correspondent in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, and spent a decade with CNN based in China. With experience in war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan, he has also reported on the North Korea nuclear threat and the rise of China. Stan’s dedication and success is reflected in the multiple significant international and Australian journalism accolades that he has received.

    Stan is the author of the best-selling and critically acclaimed books ‘The Tears of Strangers’ and ‘Talking to My Country’ and has published the praised quarterly essay ‘The Australian Dream: Blood, History and Becoming’. He continues to write about Indigenous Australia and is currently the ABC Network’s Chief Asia Correspondent and host of the nightly news program ‘Matter of Fact’.
