Race, nation, history seeks to honour the work of Henry Reynolds, one of Australia’s finest historians and one of its leading public intellectuals, on the occasion of his seventieth year. A prodigious author, a renowned commentator and a controversial advocate, Reynolds’ work has profoundly influenced two or more generations of scholarship in history and other fields, and has had a considerable impact in legal and political spheres. He has been likened to the famous English historian E.P. Thompson.
The conference is being sponsored by the Research School of the Humanities and the Research School of the Social Sciences at The Australian National University, the National Library of Australia and the University of Tasmania, and it will take place over two days on 29-30 August 2008 at the National Library, Canberra, Australia.
