Welcome to the History Council of NSW
How have Australians thought of themselves as ‘neighbours’ in the Asia-Pacific region? Professor Heather Goodall will look at how many Australians have had the courage to cross borders – taking risks to build relationships across old borders and new borders, cultural borders and ethnic borders.
History Council of NSW is proud to be collaborating with the Department of Modern History, Macquarie University on this symposium and film screening for History Week 2016. The symposium will draw together historians working on local, community and intimate histories of sport in Australia to ponder the tensions between the ideal of community, the politics of difference and the writing of history.
The History Council of NSW is proud to present its Speaker Connect series as part of History Week 2016. Eleven talks will be presented at locations across Sydney and New South Wales, including Yamba, Grafton, Tamworth, Singleton, Katoomba, Moruya and Wollongong.
