Dr. Melanie Oppenheimer Speaks on her Research and the Australian Red Cross-Updated
Those looking to attend should be advised that the date of this event has moved to Wednesday, May 25.
Dr. Melanie Oppenheimer, Professor and Chair of History, School of History and International Relations, Flinders University, will visit Carleton for an exchange on her recent work. She will present her work in an informal setting. She will talk about her early research on the role of civilian war charities (or patriotic funds as they were known in Australia – which of course has the Australian Red Cross front and centre) during WWII – including some comparative work with Canada.
Dr. Oppenheimer will also talk, briefly, about her centenary history of the Australian Red Cross – and the challenges of writing the organisational history. Finally, she will speak about the Conference she is organising next Fall: Histories of the Red Cross Movement: Continuity & Change, Flinders University, Australia, 9-11 September 2016
