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’.
The 2018 conference convenors are pleased to announce that a conference website is now available. You will find the full details on our keynote speakers, accommodation options, essential dates and other information, so that you can begin your planning. Further information will be added as the conference takes shape over the weeks and months ahead.
Abstracts are due 28 February 2019
