Rediscovering the Deep Human Past

Rediscovering the Deep Human Past

Research Centre for Deep History

The Research Centre for Deep History builds on the ARC Laureate program ‘Rediscovering the Deep Human Past: Global Networks, Future Opportunities’.

ARC Laureate Project Overview

Rediscovering the deep human past: global networks, future opportunities (FL170100121)

This 5 year program aims to expand the practice of history by experimenting with transdisciplinary methodologies. These include working with communities and learning about Indigenous modes of historical practice. We aim to develop a data base of ancient memory narratives, so that this important knowledge source is no longer neglected by historians. Working closely with Indigenous communities, we will develop an interactive digital atlas which will map selected journey routes – the song, trade, corroboree and marriage pathways of the deep human past and present. We anticipate that these epic journey stories will stress exciting themes such as origin stories, and also feature stories of continuity, discovery, invention and change. We hope that this will prove a useful resource about Australia’s deep past for school teachers and the future generations.
