The Centre for Media History at Macquarie University is Australia's only centre dedicated to conducting and fostering research on the history of the media, and history in the media. It works with industry to uncover and investigate the history of the rapidly changing media and communications landscape. Its members include leading film and other documentary makers who create innovative historical works and engage in practice-led research. The CMH hosts major events, from conferences to public lectures, along with intimate workshops and masterclasses. It provides world-class databases and other electronic resources designed to preserve and make available our media heritage, and works closely with equivalent centres throughout the world.
