2015 Hocken Lecture: Archives, Public Memory and the Work of History

Professor Tony Ballantyne has been engaged in a long-running research project on the production of colonial culture. This lecture explores the nature of archives, the possibilities of digitisation, and the role of both archival collections and historical writing in the making and remaking of cultural memory.

Tony is Head of the History & Art History Department at the University of Otago, and Chair of the Hocken Collections Committee. Tony is also the Director of the University’s Centre for Research on Colonial Culture.
