Can social media help stimulate interest in history and local historical societies? The presentation will focus on what social media is, does it help or hinder the heritage sector at both a professional, amateur, international and local level.
The speaker is our newest Committee member, Caitlin Stevens. Caitlin completed a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in history at Deakin University in 2018, and is currently undertaking a Masters in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies at the same University. She began volunteering with the Society in November 2020 and ‘is loving every minute since.’ She describes herself as ‘a student, an essential part-time worker and a volunteer.’
