History Week 7 – 15 September 2013 – Picture This

The theme for the 16th annual History Week 2013 is Picture This.
The History Council of NSW website shares the rationale for this year's theme:

"Driving humanity; reflecting change; imagining reality. In the image conscious 21st Century photographs shape the world. How has the development of the visual changed, informed and sculpted society? How do historians use art and photography to inform their research? Who were the original mad men of the advertising industry? Who were our image makers? People have long manipulated their images and all 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."

There are numerous talks and exhibitions planned to celebrate this occasion. A visit to the History Week 2013 webpage provides details of many events.
