‘In Their Own Words’: 2020 PHA Biennial Conference CFP

1-4 December 2020, University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji

‘Oral traditions contain a close approximation of the past as lived, experienced and understood in the people’s own words long before the coming of the Europeans to our shores,’ wrote the late i-Kiribati historian, Kambati Uriam, in his 1995 monograph, In Their Own Words. The title and sentiments of his work provide the inspiration for the 2020 Pacific History Association conference, creating a link to discussions in the 1985 and 2008 Suva conferences and pointing to the future of Pacific history scholarship. Convenors invite individual panel proposals. Please contact convenors before proposing a panel.

Abstracts due 31 May 2020
