End Date 8th Nov 2018 12:30pm
Location University of Tasmania, Law Lecture Theatre 1, Grosvenor Crescent, Sandy Bay Campus

A lecture to accompany the re-unveiling of the Honour Board, recognising University participants in World War One.

The University of Tasmania's Honour Board recognising graduates, students and councillors who served in World War One, will be re-unveiled to the public in time for Remembrance Day.

Currently situated in the Stanley Burbury Theatre foyer, the board will be moved to the Law Library and re-unveiled by Vice-Chancellor Professor Rufus Black.

The board was designed and made almost 100 years ago by celebrated Tasmanian woodcarver Ellen Nora Payne, whose husband and two sons had served in the war.

The event will also feature a lecture titled ‘From Academic Gown to Military Uniform: The University of Tasmania and World War I’, presented by Professor Stefan Petrow.

Professor Petrow, who is completing a book entitled Tasmanian Anzacs, will provide insights into the war experiences of some of the soldiers whose names appear on the Honour Board.

Morning tea will be served in the Law Lecture Theatre foyer prior to the re-unveiling and lecture.
