In my other life I am a university professor. I am presently writing a book about the Australians and the French in World War 1. Would any posters like to share ideas on this topic or on Australian History, Economic History, the history of France or European Politics? Maybe we could read one another's work?

Interesting topic! I've got some stuff I wrote on disease & pestilence and its influence on global politics, with a heavy emphasis on 18th-19th Century France. You might find it useful as background - I'll see if I can track it down :)

Colleagues: I am looking for photographs of Australian troops in France 1916-1919. I have gathered a collection of previously unknown photographs but I desperately need shots which show French scenes, French people, French farms etc. Everything will be fully acknowledged and carefully handled.

Managed to find what I was looking for but won't have a chance to post it until later this week as I'm out if Sydney for a short trip.

A reading group sounds like an interesting idea. How did it work? Might need to wait until we have a few more members on the board though. Going to be stepping up the advertising campaign shortly on that front, it's been working reasonably well so far :)

The procedure is fairly simple but it relies on someone organising the group . I'm willing to do this if you decide it is a good idea.

Who would be interested in a reading group on Hilary Mantel's brilliant historical novel WOLF HALL?

Count me in! Might be worth starting a new topic for it.

I'm working on a featured content slider for the front page of the forum, so I'll link to it if you do.

Just checked up on it... definitely my kind of book. Would love to be a part of a book club. I'll order it from Booktopia today.

heck... even if we don't have a book club... that's my kind of book.

Epicurus: Great.Evan Parsons will be involved. That makes three of us at present. We need ,I think, about half a dozen contributors. Come on colleagues.

You didn't count me :P

Create a new thread for it Marat, you'll get more interest that way.

Sorry,JJ. I'll start a new thread this weekend. I am getting some advice from the ex online editor of the NY Times.I'll try to attract some of the participants from the old blog.
