Ninth National Labour History Conference: The Past is Befor Us
"The Past is Before Us" acknowledges labour history as a critical dialogue between the past and the present, seeking the sources of future social and political transformation in the struggles of past generations. This dialogue is a critical exchange, requiring a rigorous analysis of the past and the historian’s practice, and the theme invites reconsideration of the theory and methodologies of labour history. Seeking to promote a more intense focus on working class experience and political mobilisation, the organisers welcome contributions which address the relationship between the categories of class, race and gender. The conference organisers intend that the theme should be interpreted in the widest possible sense, and call for papers which address either the transformative ambitions of labour history or other aspects of labour and social history. The conference organisers are delighted to announce the Hon. Meredith Burgmann, President of the Legislative Council of NSW will open the conference.
