Summary While competing interpretations of Australian history occasionally attract controversy, there is a need for a comprehensive analysis, over time, of the significance of histories and history making for Australian politicians. In taking the longer view of Australian political speech and thought since the Federation, this data will provide a stronger foundation for both political engagement with historical themes and public appreciation of the continuing role of history in contemporary policy debates. The data comprises comprehensive qualitative analysis, using key search terms and themes, over time, of speeches of Australian politicians. Sources used include Hansard, other occasional speeches in public records, political party records, and Australian Parliamentary Library resources.
GrantID ARC DP1094114
General notes This data was sourced from publicly available resources from Australian Parliamentary Library, the Australian Policy & History (APH) Network, websites of political parties and Hansard. Documents are collected and analysed from online archival sources from the Australian Parliamentary Library, the Australian Policy & History (APH) Network, websites of political parties and Hansard. The data is organised in two ways. The analyses is arranged by slices of history and themes chosen from the perspective of their value in terms of historical sensibility. The files are named by a combination of date and author. The project will progress to collecting interviews from politicians at a later stage, which may be included with the data collection.
