Event Details

After the success of last year's highly popular History Month Lecture by Professor Payton, the Dunstan Foundation and Professor Payton will present a second lecture as part of the Festival.

WW1 Conscription Crisis in the mining towns of Yorke Peninsula.

The conscription crisis in Australia in 1916-17 emphasized existing divisions in Australian society and created new ones, and was especially catastrophic for the Labor Party which was split over the issue. Although the conscription debate was nation-wide, it exhibited strong regional dimensions, influenced by economic, political, religious, ethnic, class and other variables. This talk alights on the crisis as it was manifested in the copper-mining towns of northern Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, and examines in particular the increasingly fraught relationship between Methodism and the Labor Party locally. From being a region noted for its community solidarity and developed sense of Cornish ethno-occupational and ethno-religious exclusivity, the Peninsula became a community divided against itself as the conscription crisis aggravated existing tensions and provoked new divisions.

We are a registered charity and focus on social justice issues through public events, collaborative projects and research. Our current areas of focus, as set out in our 2016-2020 strategic plan, are:

  • Helping improve individual and community mental health primarily though a range of events and commissioning research.
  •  Analysing the opportunities and challenges of migration by supporting a Migration and Population Growth Network with the Committee for Adelaide and a Migration and Refugee Research Network (MARRNet) with a broad range of organisations.
  •  Supporting Aboriginal economic empowerment by working with the Leaders Institute of South Australia and reconciliation though our annual Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration.
  • Growing the purpose economy in South Australia through the Thinkers in Residence Program that brings experts from around the world to help us develop a more purposeful economy that is able to achieve the highest levels of social, cultural and environmental impact.
