The Australian Historical Association’s annual conference is on in Canberra early in July and there are some sessions 3-6 July open to the public, including ones about the Australian Dictionary of Biography, Trove, animals, forests, the anthropocene, objects, migration, and international history.
On 7 July, there is an ANU symposium on writing and political change, with Honest History president, Frank Bongiorno, in conversation with Jeanine Leane, Shannon Burns, Michelle Cahill and Bruce Pascoe.
Then, on 12 July at ANU, journalist and novelist Chris Uhlmann is delivering the Manning Clark Lecture ‘Secret City: fact, fiction and Australian politics’. Details and booking arrangements.
Fully booked, but still worth noting, is the Canberra launch on 4 July of Dunera Lives: a Visual History, the final book from historian Ken Inglis (and co-authors Seumas Spark and Jay Winter, with Carol Bunyan). The Canberra launch is by Honest History president, Frank Bongiorno. Review coming soon on Honest History. Possies still available at the second Melbourne launch with Raimond Gaita.
