Project
Saturday 13 August 2016, Sir Raymond Ferrall Centre, Newnham Campus of the University of Tasmania (Launceston) Difficult’ history has recently been the topic of critical analysis in the history, heritage and museums of such countries as Japan, China, the United States, Canada, South Africa, Britain, Ireland and Germany. The term refers to knowledge about the ‘dark side’ of humanity, including dispossession, murder, genocide, torture, rape, slavery, paedophilia and the forced removal of children. It can be contested, conflicting and confronting. The 2016 Tasmanian History Teachers’ conference will address problems and issues in the teaching of ‘difficult’ histories in the new Australian Curriculum, with specific reference to Tasmania.
