Find a professional historian


Look for jobs and events


Since 1994 the Professional Historians’ Association of New Zealand/Aotearoa (PHANZA) has been representing and advancing the interests of New Zealand’s professional historians.

Our members enhance New Zealanders’ understanding of their place in the world by exploring our past. PHANZA works to ensure this important contribution is recognised and members have opportunities to develop their careers.
