Food Ethics Group
We currently have several research projects underway that are looking broadly at the ethical values which people use to choose what food and beverages they buy and consume. All of our projects require participants from the general public. You must be 18 years of age or over to participate in our research projects.
The Hostel Stories project is funded under the auspices of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project, in partnership with the Migration Museum, State Records (SA), the councils of Charles Sturt and Port Adelaide-Enfield, and the Vietnamese Community in Australia (SA). It seeks to investigate the lived experiences of migrants who lived in South Australian migrant hostels or reception centres in the late 1940s through the early 1990s, via extensive archival research, oral histories, and documentation of resources and material history.
Early Modern Reading Group
The Early Modern Reading Group (EMRG) was formed in 2008 to bring together people working in the field of early modern studies to discuss scholarship pertinent to their current research interests. It was intended to provide a forum where scholars from different disciplines might meet to engage with each other’s research and potentially forge collaborative projects. It was particularly concerned to provide an environment in which postgraduate and early career researchers might present their work and benefit from the support of a research community which was familiar with their chosen period and field of research.
History of Science, Ideas and Technology Group (SA) Inc
We aim to foster the recording of the history of science, ideas and technology and cooperate with other groups with common interests. We have about five meetings a year, held in the Ira Raymond Exhibition Room in the Barr Smith Library, University of Adelaide, with a paper or papers followed by refreshments. Our group is University-based but meetings are open to the public.
