Conference 2018

 

PHA NSW & ACT National Conference 2018

When: Thursday 30 – Friday 31 August 2018.
This will just be before History Week in New South Wales, enabling interstate delegates the opportunity to stay in Sydney to attend the Premier’s History Awards on the Friday and be around for the first weekend of History Week, linking the PHA conference into the state wide festival.

Where: Venue TBC, Sydney

Theme: A title is being discussed, with a preliminary idea being Marking Time: Historians and the Past. The conference would have a number of themes to explore, including commemoration and public history. This would allow those of our members who have been involved in the four years of WWI commemoration to reflect on their participation, would address the recent debates around statues and Australia Day, and encompass the wide variety of work we are all involved in.

Call for papers: January – March 2018.
