In case you missed it, Associate Professor Michelle Arrow (Macquarie University) chatted this morning with Nic Healey on 2ser Breakfast ahead of our highly anticipated Annual History Lecture, the premier event of the History Week festival.

Michelle is set to deliver her talk next Tuesday 5 September, 6pm, at Sydney Living Museums’ The Mint. She will explore the struggles over Australia’s national culture that occurred in 1970s, and how these struggles were reflected in, and shaped by, the popular culture of the day.

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?

Listen to Michelle’s 2ser interview below and don’t miss out on booking your ticket for the Annual History Lecture next week.

The History Council of NSW would like to thank 2ser and Nic Healey for showcasing History Week and the Annual History Lecture on their program.
