The Christopher Pyne Collection was donated by Christopher Pyne to the UniSA Library Archives in 2019. The collection includes a collection of books, election campaign material, electorate material, Liberal party material, Committee and Council material, briefing folders, and realia from across Pyne’s political career.
The Honourable Christopher Pyne served as the Member of Parliament for Sturt as part of the Australian Liberal Party from 1993 to 2019. Pyne served in several parliamentary roles throughout his political career, most recently as Minister for Defence.
He has been a Minister in the Howard, Abbott, Turnbull and Morrison Governments, serving as Minister for Ageing, Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Industry Innovation and Science and Minister for Defence Industry. In Opposition, Pyne served as Shadow Minister in several portfolios. He held the seat of Sturt for 26 years before retiring from politics at the 2019 Australian Federal Election.
Appointed in June 2019, Pyne is now an Industry Professor at the University of South Australia.
Pyne Time is a weekly podcast where Christopher Pyne interviews politicians, journalists and other public figures.
"For years Christopher Pyne was on the receiving end of a barrage of questions from the media and politicians but still managed to keep it together and had a successful career in politics. Now he is out of the game and risking it all to step out of his comfort zone and embrace a new world of media to turn the tables and go from the interviewee to the interviewer (…sort of). Hear the stories from guests that you’ve never heard before, as they succumb to what people describe as “the Pyne Effect”."
