Happy New Year


Thank you to all those who contributed to the PHA NSW & ACT blog in 2017. The year’s 25 posts covered:

  • Aboriginal history
  • surprising resources for historical use such asĀ knitting and the Botanical Gardens
  • issues in the practice of history, history tourism and memorialisation (this post received more comments than any other)
  • discussions on deep time and the history of place
  • two artists, Rayner Hoff and Eva Buhrich
  • several conferences and exhibitions
  • the PHA’s Public History Prize
  • members’ interests and activities and new publications.

Reviewing this activity is a reminder of the rich sources of knowledge and experience that exist in our association. I look forward to publishing your contributions in 2018.
