Graduate student members and prospective members should feel free to get in contact with any concerns, queries, or suggestions.

Conference support

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 .
