The conference organising committee is pleased to announce that online abstract submissions are now open. We are also pleased to confirm that three AHA affiliated associations – the Australian and New Zealand Society of the History of Medicine (ANZSHM), the Australian Society for Sports History (ASSH), and the Religious History Association (RHA) – will convene streams during the conference. Additionally, there will be formally curated streams on History and the National Cultural Collections (GLAM), environmental history (green stream), economic history, war and society, and ‘1968 – 50 Years On’. See the conference website for further details. And remember that abstract submissions close 28 February 2018.
