Remembrance Day Feature2

The Royal Automobile Club of Australia, in conjunction with the Australasian Pioneer’s Club, invite you to attend lunch in honour of Remembrance Day.

Associate Professor David Lee

Australia, the Paris Peace Conference and the Treaty of Versailles in 1919

David Lee is Associate Professor in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of New South Wales, Canberra.

He will discuss how dissatisfaction at the terms of the treaties made in Versailles in 1919 contributed to the beginning of the Second World War and how the treaties also reshaped the still turbulent Middle East. He will also discuss how the Versailles settlement created the League of Nations, and later the United Nations, and how it put Australia on the path from ‘dominion’ to independent nation-state.
