The Professional Historians Association National 2018 Conference ‘Marking Time’ will take place over two days at the State Library of NSW on the 30th and 31st of August.

2018 is the culmination of the four-year long commemoration of World War I and therefore a fitting time to reflect on the challenges we face as professional historians interpreting sites, places and events that become surrounded by myth and emotion.This year’s conference will explore the changing ways we mark time and interpret events through traditional and new media in the 21st century.

Key note speaker: Bruce Scates
