History Week 2020 – History: What is it good for?

Registrations are now open for History Week 2020 and close at 5pm on Monday, 27 July 2020 – Online & In-person

History Week is the annual, state-wide celebration of history organised by the History Council of New South Wales.

This is your opportunity to share your latest passion, a long term project or research that has moved you. Involve your local community in histories that matter through History Week 2020.

What is the theme of History Week 2020?

The theme of History Week 2020 is ‘History: What is it good for?’, which invites participants to share with their communities why history matters to them.

What do you love about history?  Can history be life-changing?  We want you to tell History Week audiences what histories are special to you.

  • Are these histories of place and environment such as local, public, urban, architectural or environmental history?
  • Or perhaps your focus is people and you are drawn to family histories, Indigenous histories and biographical history?
  • Is speculative, fictional, cultural or social history what inspires you?
  • Maybe you love military, economic, business or labour histories?

Whatever your style, taste and interest in history, we want you to answer the question: What is history good for?  Absolutely everything!
