Description

Session 7: Collaborating with communities

History Matters Series

Working with communities on their history can be one of the most rewarding (and frustrating) elements of being a public historian. How can we collaborate authentically with communities? What are the most productive forms of consultation? How do we shape the proposed outcomes to the needs of the community? Do we need different approaches for different communities? This session will explore the gamut of community histories from oral history projects to genealogy, native title, cultural heritage and thematic histories.

Speakers:

  • Kate Waters, Director, Waters Consultancy

  • Dr Madeline Shanahan, GML Manager, Public History and Research

Chair:

  • Brye Marshall, Indigenous archaeologist

Public history shapes our communities’ understandings of the past. This series will explore the issues that stimulate and bedevil the work of public historians. This seminar series aims to encourage a more reflective approach to the practice of history and create conversations across a diverse cohort of practitioners. Professionals, scholars, students and those with a long-standing interest in public history all welcome.

Presented by Professional Historians Association (NSW & ACT) and Oral History NSW.
