Being at home is important right now, but it can be lonely. You're invited to join the ACPH for the Public History Hour on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1-2pm.
The Public History Hour conversation will be captured on Zoom and broadcast live from the ACPH Facebook page. You'll be able to join the conversation and participate via facebook comments, lobbing in your questions and opinions and of course the hosts and their guests will comment back!
All you have to do is visit the ACPH facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AustralianCentrePublicHistory/). You should be able to view the livestream without signing up - but if you want to join the comments you’ll have to create an account and ‘like’ the page. See this guide for info on how to get notifications when the live stream starts.
On Mondays: Monday at the Movies
Join two of our postdocs, Chelsea Barnett and Joel Barnes and their special guests, as they give us their take on the latest movies (TV series also included as obvs a lot of binge watching happening right now).
Also, join us for #HATMAus Sundays at 8pm (AEDT)
With thanks to Jason Herbert, creator of Historians at the Movies, we’re very pleased to be hosting an Australian version of #HATM every Sunday evening!
The idea of #HATMAus is that it’s fun, and something we can all do to build online community in these difficult times. If you'd like to suggest a movie to watch, please get in touch. Email email@example.com or shout out to us on Twitter @AusPublicHist.
On Wednesdays: Historians in Conversation
We'll speak with historians from across the country about their work and what they are up to right now while keeping up with their social distancing.
On Fridays: Friday Chat
Centre Members and their guests will give you the lowdown on things like the latest book they've read, podcast they've been listening to and share life hacks they've come up with while working at home.
Mondays, 1-2pm (Starting March 23)
Wednesdays, 1-2pm (Starting March 25)
Fridays, 1-2pm (Starting March 20)
Please note, we'll be taking a break on Friday 10 April.
