The Menzies Centre for Australian Studies, established in the University of London in 1982 and moved to King's College London in 1999, is endowed by the Australian Government and subscriptions from a large number of Australian universities.
The Centre's object is to promote Australian studies in British and European universities, helping to cement intellectuall links between the two regions.Our staff are closely involved with the British Australian Studies Association and the European Association of Studies on Australia.
The Centre's public activities include lectures, conferences, seminars, briefings and literary readings and attract a diverse audience, helping to produce a more comprehensive, detailed and balanced perception of Australian politics, economics, life and culture than is popularly available. The Centre also administers scholarships and fellowships, offers undergraduate courses in Australian history, film and literature, MA modules in Australian Studies (history, politics, film and literature) and supervises MPhil and PhD research.
The Menzies Centre publishes an Annual Report, the annual Menzies and Reese lectures, conference proceedings and the London Papers in Australian Studies series.
