The biennial New Zealand Historical Association conference is being held in Dunedin from Wednesday 20 November until Friday 22 November. The conference organising committee is looking forward to welcoming a large and energetic group of historians, archivists and librarians, teachers, curators, and heritage professionals as well as the historically curious.
The conference keynote speakers are Professor Elizabeth Elbourne (McGill University); Professor Maya Jasanoff (Harvard University); Professor Henry Yu (University of British Columbia). Associate Professor Damon Salesa will be the Beaglehole Memorial Lecturer for 2013. Professor Atholl Anderson will deliver the Wiremu Maihi Te Rangikaheke Memorial Lecture.
Title and abstracts should be submitted by 15 May via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The conference committee welcomes panel proposals, which group three or four papers together with a chair. We are especially keen to receive panel proposals that bring senior scholars and postgraduate students together. The conference organisers are also supportive of proposals for panels that will be conducted in te reo Maori. We are also actively seeking panels that address history in the classroom, from pedagogical strategies to discussions of curricular design.
The provisional programme will be released in July. A registration web portal will open in June and early-bird registration will close 1 September. There will be a discount on registration for NZHA members.
Conference accommodation will be available at St Margaret’s College at a rate of $82.50 per night for bed and breakfast. If you are interested in making reservations at St Margaret’s, please email their Conference Co-ordinator Karen Culpeper at email@example.com. Conference rates are also available at Allan Court Motel or 755 Regal Court: please mention the NZHA Conference when you contact these motels.
There is going to be a range of events either side of the main conference. On Tuesday 19 November, PHANZA (Professional Historians’ Association of New Zealand/Aotearoa) will hold a one-day workshop, with sessions on the theory and practice of public history in New Zealand. A separate call for papers will be issued by PHANZA soon and those details will also be posted on the NZHA blog http://nzha.org.nz/. On the same day, the Religious History Association of Aotearoa New Zealand (RHAANZ) will be holding a workshop as well: those interested in participating should contact Allan Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org. On Tuesday 19 November the University of Otago’s Centre for Research on Colonial Culture (CROCC) will also be running a workshop for postgraduate students working on empire and colonialism. A separate call for postgraduates interested in that event will be issued soon, but initial enquiries about that event can be directed to email@example.com. All three of these workshops will be hosted by St Margaret’s College on the Otago campus.
Conference attendees are also encouraged to consider staying in Dunedin for the Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society conference. Its theme is “People, Power and Place” and it will run from 25 to 27 November at the University of Otago. See http://www.otago.ac.nz/law/conferences/anzlhs.html.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Dunedin!
