History Now seminars explore current and compelling issues affecting the practice of contemporary history. It is a long-running series of public talks and discussions, bringing new perspectives to all aspects of historical practice. This year History Now is a collaboration between the History Council of NSW (HCNSW), the State Library of NSW and the Australian Centre for Public History (ACPH) at UTS.

Heidi Norman, John Maynard and Lynda-June Coe reflect on Aboriginal political histories — both in terms of activism and advocacy, as well as involvement with formal legislative change and politics.
