Pacific History Association Conference 2012

20th Pacific History Conference, Wellington, 6-8 December 2012

  • GENERATIONS: Histories with a Future

The twentieth Pacific History Association Conference will be held at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, on 6-8 December 2012. The PHA serves the interests of specialists in Pacific history, Pacific studies, political studies, anthropology, and archaeology. The biennial conference is an international event drawing together researchers from the Pacific islands, NZ, Australia, Asia, Europe and the Americas. PHA 2012 will provide strategic opportunities for researchers with projects in both the early and advanced stages of research.

To that end, the conference convenors invite proposals for panels that: 1. open new research areas or themes; or 2. develop and report on research in progress; or 3. showcase the findings of major research projects; Proposals may relate to all aspects of history in Oceania. More generally, the convenors would welcome contributions and proposals for panels that:

  • reflect on the idea/practice of History in the Pacific as well as the Pacific in the teaching of History;
  • plan for the future of the field through consideration of the current state of Pacific history, its practices and methodologies;
  • reflect on the generational shifts taking place in the field;
  • offer new approaches, arguments, insights or interpretations and reflect on the state of the field.

Send panel/session proposals, including a synopsis (300-400 words) and list of potential presenters and paper titles to by 31 August 2011. To assist in the building of linkages with journals and post-conference publication, proposals should identify strategies for publication or other dissemination of conference papers/presentations and/or potential outlets.

A general call for papers will be made in late 2011 (closing mid-2012).
