The 2010 Australian and New Zealand History of Education Society (ANZHES) Conference will be convened in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia from 6-9 December. The conference theme invites participants to explore connections and ruptures between ‘Centre and Periphery’ in diverse settings: Indigenous and non-Indigenous; rural and metropolitan; pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial; northern and southern; eastern and western; metropole and empire; gender regimes and divides; class structures; ages and life stages; central management and teachers; as well as across spaces, temporalities and geographies.
A feature of the conference will be an Indigenous Histories of Education Symposium exploring the conference theme within Australian and international contexts.
The conference will be convened in the inland New South Wales regional City of Wagga Wagga. Located mid-way between Melbourne and Sydney, Wagga Wagga is easily accessible by car, air and train. The conference venue is Wagga’s Riverine Club, established in 1881 as a retreat for pastoralists and professionals. The Club is located in the heart of Wagga’s historical buildings district and adjacent to the Murrumbidgee River. The site was also the location of Wagga’s first public school.
Accommodation is available at the Club or at a range of hotels and motels within easy walking distance of the venue. The historic buildings precinct also features a diverse selection of restaurants, bars and coffee shops.
