Due to the circumstances around COVID-19, you will begin your semester 2 studies online in 2021. However, when Government guidelines change, on-campus studies will be reintroduced.
This unit will challenge your perceptions of how heritage is manufactured. You will explore, analyse, and debate local and national issues within a global frame. Through critically reflecting on how heritage is ‘made’ by historians, archaeologists, Indigenous peoples, museums, politicians, and monument builders, you will acquire an advanced understanding of the contested nature of this field. The unit will challenge you to convey the complexities of the past to diverse audiences in compelling ways. By taking you on virtual tours of heritage interpretations we will examine the ways in which digital technologies have changed how we view and interact with past cultures
