Event description

Description

Sydney Living Museums and the State Library of New South Wales invite you to our annual full-day History Extension seminar focused on the History Project. We are proud to present a range of talks and workshops, delivered by practising historians, archaeologists and museum and library professionals, that offer students fresh insights into historiography.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity for your students to develop their research skills and gain invaluable advice,
resources and inspiration as they embark on their own History Project.

Historiography workshops with Sydney Living Museums:

  • Each participant will be allocated to ONE of the below workshops. All three workshops are skills-based and focus on the processes of historical inquiry, identifying and using sources and thinking critically and reflectively.

  • Workshop numbers are strictly limited. The State Library of NSW will allocate places according to preferences expressed at the time of registration and in order of receipt, and will advise you of your workshop allocation when your booking is confirmed.

  • Some school groups may need to be split between different workshops. Staff from the Sydney Living Museums Learning team will supervise the movement of students between locations.
