Conference 2019

After the war – what’s next?

To mark 25 years since the establishment of the Professional Historians’ Association of New Zealand/Aotearoa (PHANZA), the association invites papers for a conference exploring the current and future state of public history in New Zealand.

Following four years of war commemorations and the many research and work opportunities the centenary provided, where does history go next? What research opportunities await public historians and what challenges will present themselves? The conference will be an opportunity to investigate the future of public history in New Zealand.

Dates: 13–14 April 2019

Location: Massey University, Wellington

Registrations will commence in February 2019.
