The Australian Historical Association is inviting abstracts for panel sessions and individual papers for its annual conference to be held at the University of Newcastle from 3 to 7 July 2017.
This year’s theme is ‘Entangled Histories’ in reference to the growing use of ‘entanglements’ as a key theoretical term in the humanities and social sciences. It reflects the increasing move away from narrowly defined ‘national’ histories towards an understanding of history as an interlinked whole, where identities and places are the products of mobilities and connections. The conference theme will explore the ways in which peoples, ideas and goods circulated across the boundaries of empires and nations, and viewing all cultures and societies as connected.
Presentation proposals must be submitted by 31 March 2017.
