The Australian Generations Oral History Project has interviewed 300 people living in Australia born between 1920 – 1989. The interviews explore Australian life and society across time, and illuminate generational change and inter-generational dynamics. This event is the researchers’ first opportunity to share their findings about 20th and 21st century history and memory. 

Internationally renowned oral and public historian Professor Michael Frisch will deliver the Keynote Address at the State Library of Victoria at 6pm on Thursday 30 October. The conference will feature academic historians and industry partners who form the project’s research team. Speakers include Alistair Thomson, Kevin Bradley, Anisa Puri, Katie Holmes, Kerreen Reiger, Seamus O’Hanlon, Christina Twomey, Michelle Rayner and Michael Frisch.
