Abstract

WHAT is THE ROLE of history in the shaping of Australian identities? How can historians contribute to the future development of Australian society and culture? What are the responsibilities of the academic discipline of history and the wider processes of history-making within the public sphere in the twentyfirst century? And how might knowledge of Australia's historical legacies influence and shape our responses to present social and political crises?
