The Centre for Tasmanian Historical Studies
The Centre for Tasmanian Historical Studies was suggested in 1984 by Dr Kay Daniels, a Lecturer in Tasmanian History in the Department of History at the University of Tasmania, to promote research into Tasmanian history; encourage and assist publication of research; provide professional advice to those researching Tasmanian history; and generally, to encourage interest in Tasmanian history.
In succeeding years, it has held an annual conference on some theme of Tasmanian history; held regular seminars in the Department of History/School of History and Classics at the University of Tasmania in Hobart; and published numerous volumes of Tasmanian history, notably two volumes of Historical Records of Australia concerning Tasmanian history. A full list of the Centre's publications can be found at http://www.utas.edu.au/history_classics/publications/pubs_index.html.
Every year the Centre publishes Tasmanian Historical Studies, including many papers from the annual conference and other papers on Tasmanian topics. This is a refereed journal.
The most recent Centre publication was The Companion to Tasmanian History (2005) in book form, and now follows The Companion to Tasmanian History in CD format.
