Family History 2022 More than a Story: Australian fathering and family history, 1919–2019
Join us for a discussion between Monash University's Professor Alistair Thomson and PhD Candidate Jill Barnard about their work on an Australian Research Council-funded project based at Monash University which is researching and writing the Australian history of fatherhood and fathering across the last century. Jill is studying oral histories with so-called Forgotten Australians (recorded between 2010 and 2012) who had institutional childhoods and will reflect on what she is learning about family life and relations within these 'broken' families. Al is drawing upon oral histories from the Australia 1938 project (recorded between 1979 and 1983) and the Australian Generations project (recorded in the 2010s), to compare fathering and family lives in the 1920s and 1930s with the very different social, economic and demographic context of the years since the mid-1990s.
