2023 History Council of Victoria, Annual Lecture

Online, Wednesday 25 October 2023, 5.30pm AEDT

Each year, the History Council of Victoria presents a public lecture that shares fresh thinking and new evidence on an historical topic. This year, Professor Susie Protschky will present on Colonial Pasts and ‘Image Wars’. Politics has always been visual. In countries with colonial histories, including Australia, a wide range of public actors and stakeholders wield images in their historical arguments. This lecture will examine what happens with visual archives when – as contemporary global politics demonstrates – everybody has opinions about a hotly contested colonial past.
