    Hi I'm Tash from South Australia. I have a long relationship with history – having been taken traveling as a kid and taken to museums from around the world. I also have an honours degree in History – although more recent history that we are currently dealing with. I examined the role of Malta in the Second World War. I'm currently working on a PhD although not in history this time.

    Digital Activism – how Millennials get politicised through the internet.  So looking at Clictivism, Facebook sharing, the Arab Spring, Hong Kong's Umbrella protests, Trolls, Feminism, Gay rights etc I'm only a few months in so the topic is still being narrowed down.

    Wow!  That's a fascinating subject.  Also, funnily enough it's in the same field as my co-producer.  :) Where are you doing it?

    Flinders University South Australia. It's a growing topic so I think more of people want to look at it and we will end up bouncing ideas off each other. It's amazing watching people talk politics and share ideas from across the world. There are a lot of accusations that Millennials are apathetic or not politicalised but it's so not true. They are engaged and care but just not in traditional ways. Also according to my Dad we are descended from one of the knights who got rid of a troublesome priest.

    Hope you're not in the Sampson Flats area. Getting pretty scary out there.

    Hi, no we are down at the Port, so pretty safe and a lot cooler here (only have to worry about Viking raids I suppose!)
