The Chair, Dr Liz Rushen, and Board of the History Council of Victoria extend a warm invitation to all HCV Friends to attend the official launch of the Friends program.
The guest speaker will be Professor Emeritus Stuart Macintyre AO, FAHA, FASSA, the HCV’s first Chair and one of Australia’s most influential historians. Professor Macintyre is currently the Chair of the Heritage Council of Victoria. His talk is entitled 'History and Heritage'; here is the abstract:
Heritage is in the news as Melbourne’s growth threatens places that people want to keep. History, an awareness and appreciation of the past, receives less attention. How might Victorians make more of their history?
Light refreshments will be provided.
The launch is part of History Week in Victoria.
This is a special event, free of charge, for the HCV's Friends. If you are not yet a member, please click HERE to sign up now!
