2015 AHA Conference:
‘Foundational Histories’

6–10 July, University of Sydney


History abounds with metaphors of foundation: the foundations of knowledge or the discipline, as well as the foundational narratives of nations. These metaphorical foundations do not stand on solid rock: they can be unsettled, shifted and shaken. The AHA Conference will do some gentle shaking in 2015, a year when many Australians will celebrate the centenary of the ‘birth of a nation’ at Anzac Cove.

We are excited to have as keynote speakers Professor Peter Mandler and Professor Ann Curthoys.
