History Week 2013 - Picture This
History Week was initiated by the History Council of New South Wales (HCNSW) in 1997 to showcase the rich, diverse history being produced by organisations and individuals across the state.
'Picture This' is the theme for the 2013 History Week in New South Wales.
Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it. In the image conscious 21st Century photographs shape the world. How has the development of the visual changed, informed and shaped society? How do historians use art and photography to inform their research? Who were the original mad men of the advertising industry? Long before the Kardashians, the rich and famous manipulated their images and throughout time people from all backgrounds and cultures have created their view of the world through visual representations. History Week 2013 will bring the past into view through the frame of images.
