The authors, Paul Sendziuk and Robert Foster, Associate Professors in the School of Humanities Department of History, 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.
