AUTOMOTIVE HISTORIANS AUSTRALIA 2022 CONFERENCE 17-18 Sept

'Wheels Across the Pacific: Transnational Histories of the Automotive Industry’.


Automotive Historians Australia will host our 6th annual conference on Saturday 17th (US time) /18th September (Aus. Time) 2022, online and in person.This symposium is co-convened with the Society of Automotive Historians (USA) and will cover transnational histories of the automotive industry, shared histories that extend or go beyond national boundaries. The symposium is the first of what we hope will be ongoing collaborations between Australian and American automotive historians. The event program will take into account the time differences between the two countries. 
Please consider presenting a talk on the theme - 'Wheels Across the Pacific: Transnational Histories of the Automotive Industry’. We seek presentations and papers from motor history enthusiasts.

We recognise that the auto industry has, from the late 19th century been a global enterprise although that aspect of its history is often submerged in a national story. Hence, we are looking for presentations and papers that explore ways in which the Australian and American auto industries shared expertise, skills, design and studio practices, engineering, people, business structures and management paradigms, advertising, parts and trade practices such as tariffs. 
Abstracts of 200 words outlining the theme of your proposed paper should be sent to the AHA conveners by 30 June 2022. Note that final presentations will just be 15-20 minutes in length.
Abstracts should be in Word format with the following information and in this order:
a) author, b) affiliation as you would like it to appear in programme, c) email address, d) title of proposal, e) body of proposal.
Emails should have in the subject heading: 'Wheels Across the Pacific: Transnational Histories of the Automotive Industry - Abstract Submission', and be submitted to: conference@autohistoriansaustralia.org
Conveners: Dr. Norm Darwin, PhD. President AHA; Harriet Edquist,  AHA; Skip McGoun,  SAH; Simon Lockrey, AHA. Further information: https://www.autohistoriansaustralia.org/
