"Writing Europe's Pasts"
Auckland, New Zealand, 9-12 July 2001
In 2001, the 13th Biennial Conference of the Australasian Association for European History (AAEH) will be held in New Zealand. Jointly hosted by the Department of History and the Centre for Continuing Education of the University of Auckland, the conference takes place within the university grounds in the centre of Auckland. As New Zealand's major city with over one million inhabitants Auckland offers a unique combination of city life and natural beauty. For participants from overseas, Auckland is also ideally situated to explore New Zealand and for onward travel to Australia.
The AAEH is the sole forum for modern European historians in Australia and New Zealand and brings together academics and postgraduate students from both countries and overseas. Speakers at next year's conference will include Roger Absalom, James Belich, Martin Blinkhorn, Richard Bosworth, Dick Geary, Carla Hesse, Thomas Laqueur, A.J. Nicholls, Reiner Pommerin, Jonathan Morris, Barry Reay, Geoffrey Roberts, Charles Sowerwine, and Nick Stargardt.
The full Registration fee is expected to be approximately NZ$190 (approximate exchange rates: NZ$2.50 to US$1, NZ$3.00 to UK £1, NZ$2.00 to Euro 1). Single Day and Student Registrations will also be available. As an optional extra charge, the Conference Dinner (to be held at Old Government House, temporarily seat of the NZ government in the 19th century) will cost approximately NZ$80. We will also make available an optional visit to the Auckland Museum (including breakfast, Maori Cultural Programme, Museum tour) either just before or after the conference (cost approximately NZ$30).
