Skills for New Historians Seminar: Book Proposals

The first seminar in the recently-established “Skills for New Historians” series for ECR and HDR members of the AHA was held last week, and what an afternoon it was! Huge thanks to Alana Piper and Tim Sherratt for giving us an insight into the world of digital histories. It was two hours chock-full of information, tips, and resources, and was a great way to kick off the series. We’ll be adding a recording of the seminar to the new AHA website (to be launched soon!), so stay tuned — we’ll announce when it’s up and ready to be viewed! (Note: member log-in required).

We are delighted to be able to announce the second seminar, now open for registration, and it’s a big one. The Book Proposal. Just how do you write one? What are publishers looking for? How do you choose the best publisher for your work? This upcoming seminar will feature a panel of three speakers immensely qualified to address these questions and more:


  • Skills for New Historians: Book Proposals with Professor Melanie Oppenheimer, Dr Nathan Hollier, and Dr James Keating
  • Tuesday 30 March, 3 — 5 pm AEDT (via Zoom)
  • To register: please email by Monday 29 March

Skills for New Historians is open to ECRs and HDRs who are members of the AHA. If you’d like to join in and aren’t a member, head over to the AHA website where you can renew your membership or become a member for the first time. The seminar will be recorded and the recording made available to AHA members.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
