Flinders University enjoys a well-justified reputation for its excellence in teaching and research. It has a long-standing commitment to enhancing educational opportunities for all and a proud record of community engagement.
Since being established in 1966, Flinders has achieved much of which we can be very proud—in innovative research, in high quality teaching and in community engagement.
We have led the way in providing access to higher education for individuals who did not traditionally aspire to University.
We have attracted students from over 100 countries and our alumni have built careers and lives that enrich communities across Australia and throughout the world.
Flinders' achievements are underpinned by the network of strong external links that we have developed with our stakeholders and with the communities we serve. We commit to being a university that is outwardly engaged, continuing to build the supportive and valued relationships which will be vital for the future.
Technologies of Memory and Affect is run by Sonja Vivienne, Julia Erhart, Tully Barnett, Alice Gorman and Julian Meyrick. Contact us at
