The nature and mechanics of false memories

When: Monday 21 July 2014, 6:00-7:30pm

Dr Krissy Wilson is a psychology lecturer, researcher and public speaker. This talk will review recent findings on the creation and mechanism of false memories, in both the laboratory and real life situations, and how individual differences may make some of us more susceptible.

Tilting at Windmills: A look at the Myths of Australia’s First World War History

When: Monday 15 September 2014, 6:00-7:30pm
Where: Ainslie Football Club

Graham Wilson is active in a number of historical and militaria societies, is a prolific author of historical articles and has received a number of awards for military history writing. This presentation provides an overview of a sceptical historian’s look at the AIF’s “history” and will examine and debunk the entrenched claims that the light horse charge at Beersheba “saved the day” and that this charge was either “the last great cavalry charge” or “the last cavalry charge” in history.
