RHSV and PHA Public Talk, ‘Emerging Historians: The Element of Surprise in Historical Research’

RHSV Gallery, Melbourne and online, 17 October 2023, 5.30pm to 7.00pm AEDT

Join three excellent historians for a lively public conversation about the element of surprise in historical research. Kylie Andrews will share some insights into what she discovered when writing her book, ‘Trailblazing Women of Australian Public Broadcasting, 1945-1975’. Nicole Davis will discuss some famous and some forgotten arcades in Australia, the women that owned or ran them, and the ways that archives can reveal unexpected stories of women’s involvement in business and property ownership. Miranda Francis will use the micro- history of the Footscray High School crèche to illuminate women’s changing experience of work and family life in the 1970s.
