    Tāmaki Herenga Waka: where histories meet – NZHA Conference 2017

    NZHA, in association with History at the School of Humanities, University of Auckland, is pleased to announce its biennial conference: 29 November – 1 December 2017, to be preceded on 28 November by a Graduate Day, an evening talk for conference attendees at Auckland Museum, and other pre-conference events.

    Date November 29, 2017 - December 1, 2017
    Time 9:00am - 5:00pm

    Tāmaki Herenga Waka: where histories meet proposes two main thematic lines – one acknowledging the core business of NZHA, the other the conference location:

    Aotearoa – New Zealand: This theme calls attention to Aotearoa New Zealand history. We note that the New Zealand Journal of History reaches its 50-year anniversary in 2017, so we hope the conference encourages reflection on 50 years of New Zealand history, and 50 years more to come.

    Tāmaki Makaurau – Auckland: This theme is interested in Auckland broadly defined, and urban spaces more generally, including Tāmaki Makaurau; Auckland as a crossroads, a hub, a point of departure and of arrival; Auckland of many histories and many peoples.

    We anticipate several other themes and subjects will dovetail with, enrich, and cut through these two main thematic lines: tangata whenua, Pasifika, and Asian histories; academic history, including its current state and status; public histories; transnational histories; gender; teaching history; and much more.
