About the AHA

The AHA was founded in 1973 and is the peak national organisation of historians – academic, professional and other – working in all fields of history. We have over 900 members represented by an Executive Committee that draws its members from all over the country. The Association holds an annual conference and administers a portfolio of prizes, awards and grants.

Membership of the AHA brings many benefits including access to news, events, calls for papers and other information on this website; subscription to History Australia (four issues each year); weekly email newsletters; and discounted registration at AHA conferences. Membership helps to keep you in touch with the history community.

The AHA Secretariat is currently based at the Australian National University. For further information about the Australian Historical Association, please contact the Executive Officer.
