Associate Professor Amy Roberts - Aboriginal Transitions in the Murray River Corridor: From the Pleistocene to the Present

Tuesday 13th August 2019, 6pm – 7pm (the Museum will open to guests at 5:30pm, with a complimentary wine tasting prior to the talk)


Associate Professor Amy Roberts is an archaeologist and anthropologist who works collaboratively with Aboriginal communities in South Australia. In recent years she has worked on a broad ranging project with the River Murray and Mallee Aboriginal Corporation and with their support her talk will canvass some of the results of their field work.


Amy is the lead investigator for the ARC Linkage project 'White People had the Gun: Interrogating the Riverland's Colonial Frontier' and a CI on the ARC Discovery project 'Ochre Archaeomicrobiology'. Prior to her appointment as an academic at Flinders University she worked as an ‘expert’ for a number of native title cases – including for the First Peoples of the River Murray and Mallee Region which achieved a successful determination. She continues to work in a consulting capacity on native title, Aboriginal heritage and stolen generations matters.


Amy is currently the Editor for the peer reviewed Journal of the Anthropological Society of South Australia. She is also a committee member on the Australian National Committee for Archaeology Teaching and Learning, a member of the South Australian Museum Board Research Advisory Committee and a member of the Editorial Advisory Boards for Australian Archaeology and Rock Art Research.
