Award winning paper about Baker’s Flat
In December 2016, I presented a paper on the latest findings from Baker’s Flat at Change, Commemoration, Community, the 22nd Australasian Irish Studies Conference. A review of the paper was printed in Tinteán, which also mentioned that a paper I had published in 2015 had just won an award for Best Research Higher Degree Student Publication at Flinders University.
The paper is:
Arthure, S. 2015 Being Irish: The nineteenth century South Australian community of Baker’s Flat. Archaeologies 11(2):169-188. DOI 10.1007/s11759-015-9274-y.
Poster about Baker’s Flat
A spot of shameless self-promotion, on the back of some recent success at the AAA/ASHA Conference 2014, held in Cairns in December 2014. My poster won the Best Student Poster Award – yay! – and the Flinders University Marketing and Communication Office kindly told lots of people – double yay!
The poster is called The occupation of Baker’s Flat: Irishness and power in a South Australian community, and you can see it by clicking on the image below or looking on the Australian Archaeological Association website. Nice publicity provided at Flinders in Touch and on the Inspiring Achievers page.
There was some media interest in 2014 in the Baker’s Flat project, thanks to the work of the Flinders University Marketing and Communications Office. Here are some examples:
