History Week

Now in it’s 20th year, History Week is the History Council of NSW’s flagship event which engages communities across New South Wales.

History Week 2017 seeks to examine, unravel and understand Australian ‘popular culture’. Inner West Libraries will celebrate popular culture across the decades, to investigate its construction and analyse its impact on communities and individuals.

How has popular culture, whether it be music, theatre, dance, film, television, sport or fashion, changed over time? Who defines it, and why? What does popular culture mean on an individual, community, regional and national level? How has the ‘digital age’ and 21st century technological change influenced popular culture? Have we entered a ‘new age’ of popular culture with audiences as creators, shifts in authority and more democratic modes of creative expression? Is history now part of popular culture?

History Week will explore these questions and many more from 2 to 10 September 2017. Check back for events coming up at Inner West Libraries.
