Event description
Join UQ's School of Social Science for the 2021 Hall Annual Lecture titled 'Archaeology, Heritage and the Heritage of Archaeology'.

About this event

Archaeology, Heritage and the Heritage of Archaeology, presented by Emeritus Professor Ian Lilley FSA FAHA.

In light of the COVID-19 Queensland Government restrictions, our 2021 Hall Annual Lecture has been postponed to later this year. Whilst we are disappointed that the event in August will not go ahead as planned, we are pleased to advise that a new date, Tuesday 23 November 2021, has been confirmed.

All are welcome to attend our free event.  

About the lecture: The global “Australian turn” in archaeology and heritage over recent decades has been strongly influenced by Indigenous and anthropological perspectives. This shift is not universally admired and has been viscerally criticised by some, but in fact it aligns with the thoughts and actions of the archaeology’s leaders since the modern profession emerged in the late 1800s.

This lecture surveys this history and will discuss its implications for the future of archaeology and heritage practice.

About the presenter: Ian Lilley has worked in Australasian and Indo-Pacific archaeology and heritage for over 40 years. He spent 25 years leading the academic program in UQ’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit, before becoming an Emeritus Professor in UQ's School of Social Science. He is also the invited inaugural Willem Willems Chair for Contemporary Issues in Archaeological Heritage Management at Leiden University in the Netherlands.

Ian began his training at UQ, completing a BA Hons (First Class) and Research MA focussed on Southeast Queensland under Jay Hall’s supervision. He then did his PhD at ANU working on ancient coastal trading systems in Papua New Guinea. After a period lecturing in Archaeology at UWA in Perth, Ian returned to UQ and while at the ATSIS Unit did archaeological research in Australia and New Caledonia.
