Teaching and learning Australia: Rethinking the archives in the Australian humanities

This symposium will explore the role of 'the archive' for education in the arts and humanities in Australia. With the aim of enlivening debate and discourse around pedagogical approaches for teaching in the humanities, the symposium will introduce and open up a wide range of archival material to educators, students, and cultural workers alike. These will range from official archives with established education programmes through to the lesser known and unofficial bodies of archival knowledge, which currently furnish the imagination of artists, writers, performers and historians working in Australia today.
