Description

MARKING TIME

Professional Historians Association National Conference
Sydney, 30 – 31 August 2018
at the State Library of New South Wales

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.

Registration begins on Thursday 30 August at 8:30am for the commencement of the conference at 9:00am.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided on both days, as well as food and a bar tap at the ArtHouse Hotel on Thursday night.

On Friday evening, the NSW Premier's History Awards are being held at the State Library of NSW. Tickets need to be obtained to attend this event.
