History is a Conversation

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 10 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Jill Giese, Tom Griffiths, Emma Robertson

No matter how often we visit the past, it always surprises us and the art of “time travel”, Tom Griffiths says, is to maintain critical poise and grace in this dizzying space. Jill Giese found a way to write history by listening to these time travellers. Tom and Jill join Emma Robertson to talk about how our understanding of the past has evolved. Can we ever get history right? What happens when the conversation falters and fails? Do historians make good dinner party guests?
