Unpacking Histories

How are social histories put together? What stories can objects and documents tell?

An investigative multimedia assisted workshop that aims to show how the stories of individual lives fit into the local, national and global mosaic of history. Working like historians and curators, students put on white-gloves and unpack, investigate, research and record the lives of several South Australians and their immigration stories. A constructivist ‘hands-on’ approach to 20th and 21st history, with a recent migration story added.
