The Conference will be held at Christ’s College in Christchurch, the first Monday-Tuesday (11-12) of the July break. The theme is ” ‘Ka whawhai tonu mātou, Ake! Ake! Ake! – We will fight on for ever and ever!”. The early-bird registration fee is $275 (if paid by May 6) and the full fee is $300.
The conference will include international speakers on Black Civil Rights Stan Howard and Dr. Clarence Lusane. It will also include a keynote from Hana O’Regan, a highly influential New Zealander who speaks passionately about the importance of Maori Heritage. There will be breakout sessions from notable historians on the topic of women’s right, disability rights, slavery, resistance in Nazi Germany. There will also be hand on sessions which explore teaching approaches for Maori History, the Holocaust, the Apartheid and Scholarship. In addition to this, we will have sessions from the National Library and Digital NZ who will talk teachers through how to use these resources more effectively with their classes.
