South Australians in France Project

Friday 23 - Saturday 24 February, 2018

Flinders University, Tonsley Campus
1284 South Road

During the First World War, thousands of South Australian men and women contributed to the war effort in France and on the Western Front. To mark the centenary of the 1918 victory and to recognise and understand the enduring connections formed between France and South Australia, Flinders University’s College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences is organising a public event titled South Australians in France. The event, which will involve French scholars alongside Australian experts, will bring to life the revealing histories of many of the material objects held by the South Australian descendants of First World War veterans.  The event is open to all who have an interest in exploring the connections between South Australia and France through the objects that made the journey back to SA after the war ended.  When? 23 and 24 February, 2018. *NOTE: The event is organised across three sessions; attendees may ONLY register for TWO out of the three sessions.  Begin by downloading a program here:
