RE: you’ve still got time to get your abstracts in for the upcoming NZHA conf

Good news everyone, we know you’ve been busy, so we’ve extended the date for your History Making a Difference abstracts which are now due by 28 August 2015.

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.

Submit your proposals consisting of an abstract of no more than 200 words per paper plus a 50-word author biography the NZHA conference website by 28 August 2015. This website is also the place to register for the conference and the conference dinner.

Kind regards,

Joanna Cobley

NZHA Secretary for the NZHA Conference Committee.
