As noted in the first post on this blog, we hope to use this site to draw attention to the fabulous histories written by our members. So to kick off we have a new book and a chapter.
Congrats to Libby Connors on the publication of her book Warrior: A Legendary Leader’s Dramatic Life and Violent Death on the Colonial Frontier, Allen & Unwin 2015. Available in real book and handy e-pub I note!
Congrats also to Mel Keenan on his chapter “The Western Legal Response to Sorcery in Colonial Papua New Guinea” in Forsyth and Eves (eds) Talking it Through: Responses to Sorcery and Witchcraft Beliefs and Practices in Melanesia (ANU e-press).
Do send along info on new publications!
The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society was formed in 1993. It is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who share an interest in the connections between law and history. The society grew out of the annual Law in History Conferences, which have been running since 1982. Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the area. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places.
The society is an incorporated association in New South Wales. Inc no. 1600224
