NSW History Week 2014 will be held from 6 to 14 September. This year the theme is the Great War and its impact both abroad and at home, in light of 2014 marking the centenary of the outbreak of World War I.
Community groups, local councils, libraries, archives, museums, universities and cultural institutions across New South Wales are all welcome to register events for History Week.
The History Council of New South Wales is particularly interested in learning “how your organisation will be commemorating the centenary of the First World War, a war that touched the lives of nearly every Australian.”
The History Council also encourages applications for its Speaker Connect Program, which provides historians, postgraduate students and researchers with the opportunity to visit community organisations around regional and suburban New South Wales to share their research. If you are researching any aspect of World War I and its impact on daily life, the Speaker Connect Program will help your work find an engaged audience.
