History Week 2017: Analysing How Pop Culture Has Shaped the Nation

Pop culture: a rapidly changing entity, yet one that finds ways to immortalise itself within every generation, whether it be the colourful ad campaigns and tree-hugging hippies of the 60s to the Biggie Smalls-Tupac Shakur beef that defined the hip-hop scene in the mid-90s.

This year’s History Week, organised by History Council NSW, will delve into the world of pop culture.

Nic was joined by Michelle Arrow, Associate Professor of Modern History at Macquarie University and author of Friday on Our Minds: Popular Culture in Australia since 1945, to discuss the contents of her highly anticipated Annual History Lecture, on the way in which Australian pop culture has defined and shaped us.
