Making Digital Aural History: Australian Lives: An Intimate History

Drawing upon interviews from the Australian Generations oral history project, Australian Lives is a book rich with testimony from diverse Australians about the history of everyday life across the past century. It’s also a book with a difference: e-book users can listen to hundreds of interview extracts by connecting direct to the National Library online archive.

Authors Anisa Puri (President, Oral History NSW) and Alistair Thomson (Monash University) discuss the digital technologies that are enabling new types of aural history, consider the challenges of creating Australian Lives and showcase intimate histories from the publication.

This seminar will be chaired by Professor Christina Twomey of Monash University.

The Making Public Histories series, now in its tenth year, is offered jointly by the Monash University History Program, the History Council of Victoria and the Old Treasury Building.
