Second Eric Richards Symposium in British and Australasian History

The Academy is delighted to support this event as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations.

Dates: 2-4 September, 2019

Location: University of New England, Armidale NSW

Overview: UNE History is pleased to host this symposium honouring the late Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities Eric Richards (1940-2018), who was a giant in the field of migration history. Eric arrived in Australia as a 'ten-pound Pom' in 1963, and spent most of his academic life at the Flinders University of South Australia, where he rose in prominence, becoming deeply involved in a range of history societies and committees. Both his dedication and services to history and his academic work have been well-acknowledged.

This symposium is about sharing and promoting the academic work Eric was so passionate about, particularly Australia's Scottish and Irish migrant history.
