History of Education as a field of scholarship intersects with research in other fields, and these intersections open up opportunities to think about histories in different ways, contesting the orthodox ways of knowing about, or undertaking work in, the history of education. The Australian and New Zealand History of Education (ANZHES) invites proposals for 30 min papers that contest the current histories of education through intersecting with other fields of study including:

  • Gender
  • Critical studies
  • Economics
  • Policy/governmentality studies
  • Methodologies
  • Library/museum studies
  • Religion
  • Media studies


We also invite proposals from postgraduate students to present for 10 mins (+5 mins questions) on one aspect of their research, which does not need to fit the conference theme. The panel is designed to be a supportive forum for postgraduate students to gain feedback from other academics. Postgraduate members of ANZHES are eligible to apply for a subsidy for attendance at the conference (see http://www.anzhes.com/postgrad.html).


Email title, abstracts (max 250 words), name and affiliation to: Suzanne.manning@paradise.net.nz by 31 July 2015. Please indicate whether the abstract if for a 30 min paper or a 10 min postgraduate panel presentation. Abstracts will be peer reviewed, and participants will be notified within 4 weeks.
