CALL FOR PAPERS
‘Local Communities, Global Networks’: Australian Historical Association 2019 Conference
8-12 July 2019, University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba
How have the local and the global intersected, inspired and transformed experiences within and from Australia’s history? How do the histories of Indigenous, imperial, migrant and the myriad of other communities and networks inform, contest and shape knowledge about Australia today? The conference theme speaks to the centrality of History for engaging with community and family networks. Constructing livelihoods within an empire and a nation that have had a global reach, local communities have responded in diverse ways. The varieties of historical enquiry into this past enrich our understanding of Australian and world history.
We welcome paper and panel proposals on any geographical area, time period, or field of history, on the conference theme ‘Local Communities, Global Networks’.
There will be a dedicated “Green Stream” at the conference which focuses on Environmental History. A call for papers for this stream will be circulated soon. Be sure to indicate your preference to be in this stream when submitting your paper or panel!
Abstracts due 28 February 2019
