Presenting the Past: A Symposium on History and the Media

September 9, 2013


It’s not too late to book tickets to “History and the Media,” a symposium being held as part of NSW History Week this year.

This is shaping up to be a great event. The organisers have billed it as:

bring[ing] together history professionals and media practitioners  to communicate our mutual interests and exchange ideas, skills and visions for the future. Presenters include media professionals from television production companies, broadcasting and funding agencies, historians, radio producers, journalists, editors and social media specialists.

The program reveals pretty much a who’s who of public history and media history. Highlights include practical workshops  run by really impressive people (Alex West, Iain McCalman, Frank Bongioro, Clare Wright, etc, etc).

On Wednesday I’ll be on a Social Media panel with my good (digital) friends Lisa Murray and Yvonne Perkins, as well as Katrina Gulliver, who I’m very much looking forward to meeting for the first time.

There’s also a hashtag: #histmedia and a blog.

Finally, there’s discounted entry to the Annual History Lecture down the road on Tuesday night. Bargain.
