This event has been organised to honour the memory of Hugh Stretton and to celebrate his contribution over many years to the Department of History at the University of Adelaide. It will involve a panel discussion and reflections on the evolution of the Department and its wide impact as discussed in the recent publication, Pasts Present: History at Australia’s Third University edited by Wilfrid Prest. Graduates and current members of staff will talk about how their study of history has shaped their engagement in the world beyond the academy.
