Marnie Hughes-Warrington

Marnie is Standing Acting Vice Chancellor and Deputy Vice Chancellor Research and Enterprise at the University of South Australia

She is Professor of History theory at the University of South Australia and Adjunct Professor of History at the Australian National University. Her work across philosophy and history has advanced the recognition of history making across the globe, including global recognition of Australian Aboriginal historiographies. She has authored or edited ten books, with the latest being History from Loss (2023, edited with Daniel Woolf) and The Routledge Companion to History and the Moving Image (2023, edited with Kim Nelson and Mia Treacey). Her current book project is Machine Historians, which explores the logic which shapes how humans and artificial agents make histories, and reframes artificial intelligence as an historical discipline.

Marnie will be speaking on the historical perspectives panel, Machine Memories, Methods, and Histories.

Join us on 16 and 17 November for our 54th Annual Academy Symposium — Between humans & machines: exploring the pasts and futures of automation — as we explore the possibilities and hazards of automation, and the complexities of human-machine relations.
