PARTNER EVENT: Zimbabwe Historical Association,
4th Annual Conference
ZHA was established in 2014 with one of its aims being to advance the study and publication of Zimbabwean history. It also seeks to bring together scholars from across the humanities and social sciences that have interest in the historical developments on Zimbabwe. This year’s theme is dubbed “Histories of Turning Points and Turning Points in History”. The wheels of history have been triggered, at some points propelled and at others redirected but have never stopped to turn. Events of cataclysmic levels and processes that at times even escape the ordinary eye because they are not as salient, have either been products of turning points or critical in turning history. It is around this very broad framing that the fourth conference of Zimbabwe Historical Association seeks to once again bring together stakeholders in historical studies to deliberate on various thematic issues that feed into the above conference concept.

SUPPORT
Partial or full travel support will be available for selected participants
