Macquarie University’s Centre for Applied History host this special talk and master class exploring public history in the digital age.
Digital technologies offer much for history making. The shift from the mentalities of print-based scholarship to the digital economy of knowledge production provides access to the ‘infinite’ archive, new ways of analyzing research material and multiple ways of presenting historical narratives.
This talk and master class led by Murray Phillips highlights a case study in sport history – digital histories of the Australian Paralympic Movement – to investigate the promises, tensions and compromises related to the public face of history making in the digital age.
Murray Phillips is an Associate Professor in the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences at
the University of Queensland.
