School of History - events - Wed, 2017-05-24 11:05
Date and time:  Wed, 31/05/2017 - 16:15 - 17:30 School of History Photo 2.jpg Venue:  McDonald Room, Menzies Library, ANU Contact Person:  School of History Contact email:  hist.admin.cass@anu.edu.au https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/history-and-the-present-workshop-allan-martin-tickets-34815957466

Historians have traditionally had three ethical responsibilities--to the past, the present and the future. Since the nineteenth century, professional historians have increasingly abandoned their duty to the future, focused their attention on the distance and strangeness of the past and shunned contemporary concerns to avoid the sin of anachronism or, even worse, "presentism".

The Crowd in the Thatcher Revolution: Margaret Thatcher’s rise to the conservative party leadership & aspects of her popular support

School of History - events - Thu, 2017-05-18 13:58
Date and time:  Wed, 24/05/2017 - 16:15 - 17:30 School of History 24May_Image1.jpg Venue:  McDonald Room, Menzies Library, ANU Speakers:  Dr Chris Wallace Contact Person:  School of History Contact email:  hist.admin.cass@anu.edu.au

The Thatcher Government appears as a political behemoth to contemporary observers looking back on a period of policy and social change still reverberating through western democracies. ‘Thatcherism’ became a synonym for the neoliberal suite of policies in which market forces are paramount, and for which her government 1979-90 led the charge - an approach initially contested but now a largely internalised engine driving public policy discourse and development in the west over the past 40 years.
