Welcome to the History Council of NSW
Our vision is to ensure that history, in all its diverse forms, is an important part of the cultural life of the people and communities of New South Wales.
History Week 2017: Pop!
Now in its 20th year and our flagship event, History Week, engages a range of audiences by showcasing the rich, diverse history being produced by organisations and individuals across New South Wales.
History Week 2017 invites members to celebrate popular culture across the decades, investigate its construction and analyse its impact on communities and individuals.
The Popular is Political: Struggles over national culture in 1970s Australia
Tues 5 Sept 2017, 6-9pm | The Mint, Sydney | $45 / $50 (excl fees)
How did popular culture make sense of the social change of the 1970s? Was the popularity of the ocker a reaction to the women’s movement? And how did popular histories on film and television contribute to this cultural contest?
The History Council of NSW is proud to announce its popular Annual History Lecture will be delivered by Associate Professor Michelle Arrow (Macquarie University). Join us for history and nibbles!
