AHA Conference 2019: ‘Local Communities, Global Networks’

8 July @ 8.00 am - 12 July @ 5.00 pm

How have the local and the global intersected, inspired and transformed experiences within and from Australia’s history? How do the histories of Indigenous, imperial, migrant and the myriad of other communities and networks inform, contest and shape knowledge about Australia today? The conference theme speaks to the centrality of History for engaging with community and family networks. Constructing livelihoods within an empire and a nation that have had a global reach, local communities have responded in diverse ways. The varieties of historical enquiry into this past enrich our understanding of Australian and world history. We welcome paper and panel proposals on any geographical area, time period, or field of history, especially those relating to the theme of ‘Local communities, global networks’.
