Migration Memoires: An Analysis of Representations of Australian Migration Histories

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    This project is an innovative analysis of the representation of Australian migration heritage through community and archival research and imaginative forms of representation. The research focuses on underexplored regional locations and involves developing a pilot museum exhibition. The research for the exhibition will use the material of personal memory to create a dynamic connection between individual stories, historical narratives and places. Community engagement with the exhibition will be investigated as part of the research process. This research will bridge the gap that exists in Australia between theoretical work on history and memory, migration and diaspora, and interpretive and museological practice.
