What is oral history? What is its relationship to heritage, public history and memory? Who has authority to tell stories from the past? This introductory workshop outlines the development and practice of public history. It draws on some case studies of oral history projects.

From collection search to collections as data

This workshop will explore ways of working with the digital collections of libraries, archives and museums. Focusing on Trove, we’ll examine both the limits and possibilities of traditional search interfaces before moving on to ways of aggregating and analysing collection data. How can we see and use GLAM collections differently? There will be a number of hands-on exercises, so bring along your laptop, creativity, and tricky research questions.

Phillip Jones is a leading advocate, educator and awards judge of craft spirits, and in this engaging talk he’ll share four stories from this world. The industry has seen a global renaissance in recent years as old expressions of gin, vodka, whisky and rum have found new voices inspired by place, the environment and their cultures.  The stories of the distilleries, and the people who craft their spirits are as varied as the places they are located, from the inner city, to remote rural settings. Delegates will also enjoy samples of the curated selection of spirits during the presentation for an immersive experience.
