PHA NSW Conference 2018

Professional Historians Association National Conference
Sydney 30 – 31 August 2018

CALL FOR PAPERS
Professional historians record the history of places with direct connections to the public: in parks, on monuments, at exhibitions, in archives and publications. 2018 is the culmination of the four-year long commemoration of World War I and therefore a fitting time to reflect on the challenges we face as professional historians interpreting sites, places and events that become surrounded by myth and emotion. The conference organisers are calling for papers which consider those challenges. We welcome submissions that consider the place of memorials, changing attitudes to marking historical events and the historian’s role in creating and defending the evidence base for commemorations. The conference will explore the changing ways we mark time and interpret events through traditional and new media in the 21st century.

THE DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS IS MONDAY 26 MARCH 2018
