Masterclass: Patriotism, Memory, and History

Masterclass for Postgraduate Students
22-24 July 2009

The Department of History, the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry, and the Nation-Empire-Globe Research Cluster invite participation in a three-day series masterclass on Patriotism, Memory, and History.

We invite students from any field who will benefit from discussion of the relationship between history and nationalism. We also welcome students whose work challenges this long-accepted idea either explicitly through studies of history and/or historical consciousness that subverted national ideals, or implicitly through the use of a transnational or otherwise extra-national approach.

The master-class is free. The reader and lunches, as well as morning and afternoon refreshments, will also be provided without cost. The due date for expressions of interest in attending the masterclass is June 25, 2009.

Please contact Clare Corbould clare dot corbould at usyd dot edu dot au.

Alternatively, if you would like to submit or present work during the masterclass, please submit the following.

  1. a brief curriculum vitae
  2. full contact detail
  3. a brief précis of either a 15-20 minute paper for presentation OR of a chapter you would like to circulate in advance for discussion during the workshop. The summary should include information on how this paper or chapter relates to the workshop themes
  4. whether you would like to apply for the bursary for accommodation during the conference
