AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This essay collection poses questions about story: what are our stories, how are they 'told', who tells them and how are they used? The writers explore the narratives by which we construct and realise our individual and collective identities. Stories can be shared to build and nourish relationships between individuals and groups and between generations. Stories can be lost and found. They can also be ignored, marginalised, hidden, stolen or silenced. We are involved in discovering and shaping our own cultural identities. What past and present stories will we remember, research, collect and preserve? What new stories will we create for changing times?' (Introduction)

It would be rash or foolish to suppose that the reduction of cultural and human values to what can be effectively marketed will reverse itself any time soon; but there is at least some evidence at the political level that people want governments that are prepared to invest more rather than less in the enrichment of cultural opportunities and amenities for everyone.'
