Event Description

Full Description:
Digital technologies offer much for history making. The shift from the mentalities of print-based scholarship to the digital economy of knowledge production provides access to the ‘infinite’ archive, new ways of analysing research material and multiple ways of presenting historical narratives. Digital technologies also offer opportunities to provide a public face to historical scholarship. This scholarship has a wider mandate engaging with social media, volunteer citizen scholars, institutional partners and memory institutions.

This presentation highlights a case study in sport history - digital histories of the Australian Paralympic Movement - to investigate the promises, tensions and compromises related to the public face of history making in the digital age.

A/Prof Murray Phillips and Dr Gary Osmond (HMNS) are Chief Investigators on the ARC Linkage Project Creating Histories of the Australian Paralympic Movement (2014-17). Gary and Murray’s book Sport History in the Digital Era (University of Illinois Press, 2015) was awarded the Australian Society for Sports History book anthology prize in 2017
