PHA to host Professional History stream at 2014 AHA conference, University of Queensland, Brisbane
As part of the Australian Historical Association’s 33rd annual conference at UQ, 7-11 July 2014, Professional Historians Australia is hosting a one-day, national professional development conference on 9 July 2014: ‘Conflict in History’ and the Professional Historian.
The day’s program will run on 9 July, parallel to the main AHA Program. Commencing with a tour of the John Oxley Library collections, the program will include sessions on researching, publishing and writing history. The program focusses on pressing issues for professional historians and showcases the expertise of PHA members from around the country. An afternoon tour of the Fryer Library will follow, and the day will be capped off with a tour of Old Government House, and the launch of Circa No. 4, where members will have a chance to mingle over drinks and nibbles.
