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.

Call for papers


Call for expressions of interest for new editor/s for History Australia

The current editors of History Australia will be retiring after 31 December 2015. The AHA Executive wishes to appoint a new editor or editorial team to the position by mid-2015 to allow for a smooth transition. The Executive welcomes expressions of interest from candidates located in any Australian university or universities, and engaged in any variety of history, to be received by Monday 16 March 2015.
