Join us in Australia’s most vibrant city! The Melbourne hub will be held 20th–21st September at the historic Queen’s College, University of Melbourne, and welcomes Victorian scholars of all career levels.

The Melbourne hub will consider the theme of “event” in relation to “Exhibits.” “Exhibits” would like to consider 15 to 20-minutes papers of panel proposals relating to the theme of exhibits or exhibitions in the nineteenth century from any discipline, from formal exhibitions to events of protest or public executions.

The Melbourne hub looks forward to hearing from keynote speakers Assoc. Professor Michelle Smith (Monash) and former New Zealand Chief Historian, Professor Jock Phillips. Within our program there will be room to explore key exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria and the Melbourne Museum, and maybe even a protest or two!


The Melbourne hub is grateful for the following sponsors: Queen’s College, The University of Melbourne.
