About your Gallipoli Tour
Monash University’s Study Tour of the Gallipoli Peninsula is led by the Director of the National Centre for Australian Studies, Professor Bruce Scates. The tour will involve an in-depth study of the campaign, recreating the lives and deaths of the men who fought at Gallipoli. It will also include cultural tours of Istanbul and Troy, two of the cultural treasures of Turkey.
Bruce is one of the world’s leading Gallipoli scholars and has led several battlefield tours of Gallipoli, Crete and the Western Front. He also leads the Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Tour at the express invitation of the Premier of Victoria. All the consultancies fees raised by this important work for the State government are channelled into funding these prizes.
Bruce is the winner/co winner of University, State and National awards for excellence in university teaching. He is also the author of several acclaimed studies of memory and war, including Return to Gallipoli: Walking the Battlefields of the Great War and A Place to Remember: A History of Victoria’s Shrine of Remembrance both published by Cambridge University Press.
