Title : Australian centre for public history

Description :
The website "The Australian Centre for Public History" provides information about projects and research carried out at this research centre (ACPH) at the University of Technology, Sydney. The aims of the Centre are to promote public history in both the public sphere and in academia and to provide funding, advice and teaching for those interested in public history. It serves both as a focus point for historians and for the institutions, companies, industries, local community groups, and local authorities who wish to record or document various aspects of their history. ACPH is particularly interested in how Australians learn about their history. The Centre offers opportunities for public historians, such as community or consultant historians to interact with and have access to other professional historians and also runs workshops and conferences. The Centre publishes the "Public History Review" which can be read with a free of charge subscription. Past and current research project can be consulted on the site.
