Presented by Oral History NSW and the State Library of NSW
How do we make sense of the memories that we record as oral historians? How do we begin to transform stories into histories? In this workshop with oral historian Alistair Thomson we’ll consider a range of ways of approaching the interpretation of memories.
Numbers are strictly limited.

From community-driven and university-based projects, to the collecting initiatives of libraries, archives and museums, the oral history work being undertaken with Indigenous communities across Australia is extensive.
In this seminar, you’ll hear from Associate Professor Heidi Norman, who has expertise in conducting research about Aboriginal land rights, Dr. Dino Hodge, an activist and academic renowned for his explorations of Indigenous Australian queer histories, and archivist Kirsten Thorpe, who leads the Indigenous Services team at the State Library of NSW. The session will be chaired by Kate Waters – an experienced professional historian with expertise in ethical approaches to conducting oral history interviews with Aboriginal communities.
