Join in a conversation with two curators, Anne-Marie Conde, National Archives of Australia and Elise Edmonds from the State Library of NSW for an illustrated discussion of their practice with their institutions’ very different collections. Hear from these experts how World War l personal diaries come together with official records of individual service to illuminate aspects of the experience of war.

Elise Edmonds works as curator in the Research and Discovery Branch at the State Library of New South Wales. She received a staff fellowship in 2009 to research the Library’s World War I collections. She curated the Library’s 2014 exhibition, Life Interrupted: Personal Diaries from World War 1.
