The objects in our homes are an important part of our individual and family histories. Especially in 2020, the household objects we use every day – and the ones that have special meaning – became important to our sense of self, family, and our wellbeing. In this workshop, University of Adelaide honours students explain how historians work with everyday objects to crate snapshots of the past. We invite you to think about the uses, histories, and meanings of the ‘things’ in your home. Bring along an object on the theme of ‘domesticity’ for our history harvest and tell us its story! Bookings essential.
