Centenary Lectures

This series brings together some of Melbourne’s most iconic cultural institutions to consider how, after one hundred years, the changes ushered in during the First World War still resonate today. It follows in the footsteps of past Australian academics, who presented public lectures in 1915 to help make sense of the conflict. The centenary lectures are held in partnership with the Shrine of Remembrance, National Gallery of Victoria and Museum Victoria.
