Did you catch the 2017 Annual History Lecture on ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas program last night? The History Council of NSW’s Annual History Lecture 2017 was delivered by Associate Professor Michelle Arrow at Sydney Living Museums’ The Mint during History Week on 5 September 2017.

Her fascinating talk examined the prominence of Australian “ocker” culture in the 1970s and its connection to the women’s movement and other social and political issues at the time. We created a Storify summary of the tweets from the evening which you can read here, and ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas program recorded the lecture.
