Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN) Newsletter – 12/06/20

Dear All,

Please see below for the latest information on news and opportunities in Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies 🙂


‘Urgent Histories’ Forum
The next issue of History Australia includes a forum engaging with the theme of ‘urgent histories.’ The forum is made up of three papers with a response by Paul Kramer: ‘Here we stand: temporal thinking in urgent times’ by Tamson Pietsch and Frances Flanagan; ‘Doing environmental history in urgent times’ by Katie Holmes, Andrea Gaynor, and Ruth Morgan; and ‘Training historians in urgent times’ by Yves Rees and Ben Huf. These articles will be published online and free to access from 15 June 2020.
Over the course of that week, historians from across Australia will give their responses to these views and debate starters in a collection of blog posts:
AHA Early Career Researchers blog: Monday 15 June 2020
Australian Policy and History Network blog: Tuesday 16 June 2020
