50th anniversary

50th Anniversary of the inaugural ANZSOC meeting 

This film records the 50th anniversary of the inaugural meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology that was held in the Japanese Room at the University of Melbourne on Tuesday 24 October 1967. To mark the occasion, a luncheon was held on Tuesday 24 October 2017 in the same room, albeit in a different location, attended by a number of those who attended the original meeting, former presidents of the Society, current officer-bearers and some of the earliest members. Recorded are their personal reflections on the meeting and the development of the Society and criminology in Australia and New Zealand over the last five decades.
