The Past and Future of Labour History

The first in our seminar series, Labour History: Looking Ahead After 60 Years, was held on 22 March 2022. It featured Sean Scalmer (University of Melbourne) who spoke on “Politics and Context: Labour History’s Pasts, Labour History’s Futures” and Liam Byrne (Australian Council of Trade Unions) on “Telling Union Stories: Movement History Today and in the Future.”
