The Contemporary Histories Research Group is pleased to announce that our second Provocation is now available. For our June instalment, Professor David Lowe and Associate Professor Christopher Waters discussed ‘The State of Historical Writing About Australia in World Affairs’.
Why have historians writing about Australia in world affairs not developed into contrasting ‘schools’ of thinking? Have they recently become less contesting of each others’ views than earlier? Two CHRG members and senior historians in this field, David Lowe and Chris Waters, discuss these questions and more.
The Provocations series is a monthly recording between members of the group and beyond. You can catch up on our first instalment, a recording between Professor David Lowe and Dr Filip Slaveski in relation to traumatic memory, mismemory and forgetting.
