Event: Why do we need a new history of South Australia?

The first Friends of the Library event for the year is being held on Thursday 4 April at the Barr Smith Library.

Associate Professors in the School of Humanities, Department of History, Paul Sendziuk and Robert Foster, will speak on their book, A History of South Australia.  This is the first comprehensive single-volume history of our State published in over fifty years.

The authors will speak to the need for a fresh understanding and examination of South Australia’s complex past - including conditions prior to European exploration, the imprint of people on the land – and vice versa, the ‘free’ state settlement, relations between Indigenous people and colonisers, the establishment of the State’s distinctive socio-political structures, and relationships with the rest of Australia and the world. 

When: Thursday 4 April 2019, 6:00 pm (for a 6:30 pm start)

Where: Ira Raymond Exhibition Room, Barr Smith Library, North Terrace Campus

RSVP is essential - book today!
