The 2020 Conference of the Australian Chesterton Society on “
Chesterton and Woman: Romance and Reality” was postponed to 2021 on account of COVID-19 travel and other restrictions. For the same reason, it did not prove possible to hold the conference in 2021, as was intended, at Campion College in Sydney.
