Second Colloquium of the Australian and New Zealand
Association for
Medieval and Early Modern Studies

University of Sydney
1-4 February 2000

The Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and
Early Modern Studies, formed in 1997 through the
amalgamation of the Australian and New Zealand Association
for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and the Australasian
Historians of Medieval and Early Modern Europe, will hold
its second biennial conference at the University of Sydney,
Tuesday to Friday, 1-4 February 2000.

The conference will be held in air-conditioned venues on
campus, overlooking Victoria Park. Accommodation has been
reserved in Sancta Sophia College, and there are numerous
hotels in the immediate vicinity.

Expressions of interest are sought from scholars in all
fields of medieval and early modern studies, and at all
stages of their careers. Proposals for papers and for
sessions are invited, as well as more general enquiries.

In the year 2000, the University of Sydney, Australia's
first University, will celebrate its sesquicentenary, the
city of Sydney will be preparing for the Olympic Games in
September, and the nation will be preparing for the
centenary of Federation on 1 January 2001.

While no theme is set for the conference as a whole, the
Organising Committee expects that some sessions will be
organised around issues that relate to these events and the
broad question of Constructing Identity: Republics, Nations
and Cultures.
