HISTORICALLY SPEAKING 2006: A public seminar series hosted by History Council of Victoria (HCV). In conversation with John Hirst and Marian Quartly
6 - 8pm
TUESDAY 27 JUNE
State Library of Victoria
From 6 - 8pm on the final Tuesday of every month in 2006, the History Council of Victoria (HCV) will host their lively public debate series Historically Speaking at the State Library of Victoria (SLV).
Historically Speaking commences 6pm Tuesday 27 June 2006 with an 'In Conversation' between John Hirst and Marian Quartly to discuss Hirst's 2005 publication, Sense and Nonsense in Australian History. Both John Hirst (Latrobe) and Marian Quartly (Monash) are passionate about Australian history. Both are particularly interested in Australian nationalism, citizenship and civil education. Both have held a number of influential history-related appointments. And yet, when it comes to their interpretation of actual events, our June seminar speakers see things very differently.
Don't miss the June Historically Speaking for a chance to witness two influential Australians historians engaging in a quality cut and thrust debate about they way they understand Australia's past, present and future.
Historically Speaking is free and available to members of the public.
