2010 History Colloquium 


The history and cultural events of the Northern Territory and its surrounding Asian neighbours will be explored as part of the 2010 History Colloquium.

Organised by Charles Darwin University (CDU), the Australia National University (ANU) and the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, the Colloquium will offer insights into a broad range of historical subjects by established experts.

Colloquium Chair and President of the Professional Historians Association (NT), Dr Steven Farram said the event would offer historians, especially postgraduate students from CDU and ANU, the opportunity to present on their recent research.

With most of this year's presentations about NT history, areas of interest will include ethics and human rights policy, NT Defence history, Australian foreign policy, bureaucracy, politics, exploration, and Indigenous issues.

Speakers include prominent historians David Carment, Alessandro Antonello, Adam Hughes and other academics from CDU, ANU and the Australian Defence Force.

The free event will be held on Saturday, 6 November at the theatrette in the Museum and Art Gallery and is open to interested staff, postgraduate students and all members of the community.
