History seminar series

Flinders History seminars are the longest running history seminar series in Australia.

Running since 1969, when the History department was established, the seminar series features international, national and local speakers, and provides a vehicle for higher degree by research students to present their research, as well as hosting Honours presentations.

The seminar series is open to the public. Join us.

Note, the seminars are suspended until the COVID-19 situation is stabilised. We will be monitoring public health recommendations and the University's guidelines, and will update the information here when it seems likely that the seminar series can recommence.   


Archaeology fieldwork at Flinders

Fieldwork is one of the things we do best.

We offer a range of undergraduate and graduate field methods topics, as well as more field schools in more locations than any other archaeology department in Australia.  

Field schools are a great way to see Australia, so even if you aren't a Flinders University student, you're welcome to attend as a short course student. International students are particularly welcome.

Intensive courses

Flinders also offers a range of intensive topics and laboratory short courses addressing basic skills in human osteology and analysis of the human skeleton, stone artefact analysis, maritime archaeology lab methods, as well as on specialised areas such as cultural heritage and the law.
