DESCRIPTION Explores ways of knowing and relating to the past, what historians can learn from related disciplines, how historians communicate historical knowledge beyond academe to the wider community, and the way the wider community identifies with history. The unit examines a range of popular contemporary practices such as oral history, social history, and local history; photographs as record and reminder; the history of buildings and landscapes; archives and the preservation of documents; heritage places, including convict sites; collecting historical artefacts; museums and their exhibitions; historical re-enactments and commemorations; media histories; and the writing of commissioned histories. The themes are explored with Australian and international examples.
