Private Lives, Public History

Anna Clark
The past is consumed on a grand scale: popularised by television programs, enjoyed by reading groups, walking groups, historical societies and heritage tours, and supported by unprecedented digital access to archival records. Yet our history has also become the subject of heated political contest and debate.

In Private Lives, Public History, historian Anna Clark explores how our personal pasts intersect with broader historical questions and debates. Drawing on interviews with Australians from five communities around the country, she uncovers how we think about the past in the context of our local and intimate stories, and the role history plays in our lives.
