Conference registration fees

You will note that registration is cheaper than usual for this AHA Conference. This is because, in light of the ongoing pandemic, with the exception of the reception and conference dinner, the Organising Committee and AHA Executive have taken the extraordinary decision not to provide any catering during the conference. We have done so,


  1. For public health reasons

  2. To mitigate the financial risk to the AHA and to registrants if we have to move the conference online or partly online at the last minute

  3. To reduce costs at a time when many participants are under financial stress


We note that there are multiple excellent coffee and food vendors close by the venue, and that the Roundhouse has excellent facilities for socialising outside of formal activities. We will provide every registrant with good coffee and/or other beverages through a voucher/tab system and will ensure that restaurants and cafes have capacity to feed you all at a reasonable cost. We will also organise opportunities for PhDs, ECRs and others to network with other scholars in and beyond their subfield.

‘Concession’ is someone in a fixed term position (1 year’s duration or under) OR who is retired.

COVID-19 Disclaimer 


Under the current circumstances, the Australian Historical Association and the Conference Organising Committee are unfortunately unable to guarantee that the AHA 2021 Conference will be held in person. AHA and the Organising Committee will closely monitor developments and abide by government and university regulations. In the unlikely event that we are not be able to proceed with a wholly in-person conference in 2021, the Organising Committee will endeavour to facilitate a hybrid or virtual AHA 2021 Conference. In this event, if possible after covering costs and levies, we will provide a partial refund to registrants who are only able to attend online.
