Professional Historians Association National Conference is on in Sydney, 30-31 August

Australia’s professional historians are conferencing in Sydney at the end of this month (State Library of NSW) and the details are here. It’s on at the same time as the NSW Premier’s History Awards.

The conference topic is ‘Marking Time’, it is about memory and memorialisation, the keynote speaker is Professor Bruce Scates (co-author of World War One: A History in 100 Stories, and author or co-author of many other books and articles) and the speakers include Stephen Gapps, the review (by Lyndall Ryan) of whose book, The Sydney Wars, smashed all view records on the HH site. All looks good.
