Haere mai.

To be held in July 2013, the 23rd meeting of the Australasian Association for European History (AAEH) marks a return to Wellington, the vibrant political, cultural and arts capital of New Zealand. Our theme this year, 'Faultlines', encapsulates the instability and uncertainties of present-day Europe – so distant from the triumphs of 1989's fall of the Berlin Wall and 2002's introduction of the Euro. In the context of intense pressures on Europe's cohesion, the conference encourages reconsideration of Europe's myriad historical faultlines – national, regional, religious, economic, ethnic, social, cultural, generational, and others. The Conference will be held at Victoria University of Wellington between 2 and 5 July 2013.

The Conference Programme is available below.
