Researching Soldiers in Your Local Community
November 17 @ 11:00 - 13:00$32 – $35
This event is in partnership with WEA Sydney
Researching Soldiers in Your Local Community is a WEA workshop presentation investigating the online resources available for researching First and Second World War Australian service personnel. Participants are invited to follow along the Internet trail with their own local soldier to ask questions such as: How did the people who once lived in our hometowns and suburbs experience war? How do we remember them? What can this tell us about the forces of change and resilience within our own communities?
About the speaker: Elizabeth Heffernan is a Higher Degree Research student at the University of Sydney, specialising in First World War Australian soldiers and religion. She has developed online resources to support people who wish to research the experience of Australian soldiers as part of her contribution to the Royal Australian Historical Society outreach programs.BUY TICKETS
