ASSLH Conference > (Re)Sources: Historical Inquiry and Labour History Archives

This year, the Canberra Branch of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History (ASSLH) will host the Society’s 18th Biennial Conference. The Conference will be held at the Research School of Social Sciences Building (Building #146, Ellery Crescent), ANU, Canberra, on 23-25 November 2023. 

(Re)Sources: Historical Inquiry and Labour History Archives will enable us to reflect on the significance of archives and libraries to the study of history. 

Archives and collections provide individuals and communities, authors and historians, and unions and universities the opportunity to reflect on their pasts, recover lost voices, contextualise established ones, and check the facts.

We have opened our Call for Papers and welcome papers on a range of subjects. You can view our CFP and submit abstracts here. Please note that abstracts are due by 31 May 2023.
