Making Public Histories webinar series - 2020 program

The 2020 Making Public Histories webinar series was presented as a joint initiative of Monash University, the Old Treasury Building and the History Council of Victoria.

The series was generously supported by the three partner organisations and sponsored by the School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies at Monash University. Gifts for the speakers were kindly donated by Monash University Publishing.

When restrictions were placed on face-to-face gatherings in Victoria in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program was redesigned for online delivery. Each webinar attracted a large and international audience. The webinars were recorded and are freely available to view and to share via the HCV's YouTube channel.
