For almost fifty years ANZHES has been welcoming postgraduate students specialising in the history of education to its conferences and other activities. The Society recognises and values the wealth of talent and cutting-edge research that postgraduates bring to our discipline.
Postgraduate student representative
PHD Candidate and Sessional Academic
I am a PhD Candidate at Griffith University. My thesis explores conflicts between Christian and secular ideals in the history and present of education in Queensland. I aim to be a voice for postgraduate students in ANZHES and contribute to developing social connection between postgraduate members. Postgraduate members and prospective members should feel free to get in contact with any concerns, queries, or suggestions.
Conferences are ideal places to present work, test ideas and receive feedback and guidance from experienced researchers and academics in a supportive and collegial environment. Senior academic colleagues usually run workshops of interest for postgraduate student members prior to the annual ANZHES Conferences.
ANZHES offers some financial support for full or part time postgraduate students who are financial members of ANZHES and who present a paper at an annual conference. Applications should be made to the ANZHES Secretary using the application form (in development).
