Call for papers: NZHA conference

History Making a Difference

The biennial New Zealand Historical Association conference will be held in Christchurch from Wednesday 2 December until Friday 4 December 2015.

Our theme for 2015 explores how the study, teaching and promotion of history in Aotearoa/New Zealand has the ability to ‘make a difference’.

Confirmed keynote speakers are Professor Kate Darian-Smith (University of Melbourne), Professor Dame Anne Salmond (University of Auckland) and Professor Paul Ward (University of Huddersfield).

The NZHA conference committee welcomes proposals for:

  • individual papers that reflect critically on our theme from any angle, historical period, or research area, or
  • panel sessions that group three or four papers with a chair; or
    • bring together postgraduate, early career and senior researchers; or
    • bring together those working in the GLAM sector with academics; or
    • panel sessions that will be conducted in te reo Maori.

Proposals consisting of an abstract of no more than 200 words per paper plus a 50-word author biography should be submitted here by July 1 2015.
