From Big History to Microhistory, Global History to Local History, from a single document to a large collection, the scale of history varies greatly. Do you write history on a grand or intimate scale? Or both? Join us at the 2018 AHA conference to ponder these questions and more. Keynote speakers: Professor Clare Anderson (University of Leicester) and Professor Mark McKenna (University of Sydney).

The AHA’s annual conference is a great opportunity to share your research, network and most importantly to catch up with other Early Career Researchers in Australian history! This year the conference will be held at the University of Newcastle, 3–7 July 2017. The theme is ‘Entangled Histories’ in reference to the growing use of ‘entanglements’ as a key theoretical term in the humanities and social sciences. It reflects the increasing move away from narrowly defined ‘national’ histories towards an understanding of History as an interlinked whole where identities and places are the products of mobilities and connections. The conference theme will explore the ways in which peoples, ideas and goods circulated across the boundaries of empires and nations. ‘Entangled History’ views all cultures and societies as connected. The AHA welcomes submissions that consider the value of entangled frameworks for historical analysis from all historical periods, themes and research areas. Proposals for panel sessions of three papers are especially encouraged. We’re looking forward to seeing you all there!
