A reminder that the deadline for abstracts for the ANZLHS Conference in December is almost upon us – March 31. More information can be found in the conference menu.
We are calling for expressions of interest from members who want to take part in the biannual swop panel with the ASLH. The 2015 meeting is in Eashington DC in the last week of October. More information can be found on the ASLH website. As this is a swop panel, proposals will need to be for a full panel (three presenters) + a chair and commentator. Presenters will be remitted the conference fee and some funding may be available from our society. The deadline for the ASLH panel proposals is mid March. So if you are interested please send an abstract for the panel and three individual paper abstracts, as well as the name of your chair and commentator to Shaunnagh.Dorsett@uts.edu.au or Jason.Taliadoros@deakin.edu.au no later than the nd of the first week of March. The final decision rests with the ANZLHS Executive.
its a great conference, so think about putting a panel together!
So that we can get news and information to our members faster we have decided to establish a new blog/website. This replaces the old ANZLHS website (thank you to Waikato for hosting it for so long) and the newsletter. Now we will be able to provide updates on conferences, CFPs, new publications and information on what our members are doing much more quickly. So please call back. You can also sign up to receive information updates via email if you prefer. Let us know what other information you would like to see on this page. We hope that this will enable you to stay in touch more easily with what is happening in legal history in ANZ and further afield.
