'The leading centre for Australian studies in the United Kingdom. Through interdisciplinary research and public engagement, we provide an international forum for discussion and analysis of Australian society and culture. We are one of five global institutes in the School of Global Affairs at King’s College London. Located on the Strand in central London, we are just metres from Australia House, the home of the Australian High Commission. We are named after Sir Robert Menzies (1894-1978), Australia’s longest-serving prime minister. We are academically independent and have no affiliation with any political party.'

LECTURES and TALKSResearch Programme

'The Mercers’ Lectures are named in recognition of the links between Dauntsey’s and the Mercers’ Company, which go back to Mercer founder Alderman William Dauntesey, Master of the Worshipful Company of Mercers, who founded the School in West Lavington in 1542. The lectures are a central part of our enrichment programme which encourages pupils to engage with the world outside the school gates, and to think beyond their academic curriculum. Through the programme, we have welcomed a diverse array of eminent speakers to Dauntsey’s; all are warmly invited to the lectures, and over the past few years over 15,000 have attended.'

The main activity for the Society centres around a series of talks that take place on the second Tuesday of every month between September and April. These talks are open to all, not just to our members.'
