Welcome to the School of History

Our school enjoys a very high national and international reputation for the quality of its research and teaching. The School of History’s staff and research students produce world-class research in Australian, British, European, and North American history, and our three centres – of Biography, Environmental History, and Indigenous History – are active and globally recognised research hubs in their fields. The School also teaches a wide variety of undergraduate courses, supervises graduate students in our research fields, and maintains a vibrant culture of research seminars, Visiting Fellows, and departmental visitors from Australia and abroad. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website, and I hope that you will explore it to see the breadth and quality of our work.
