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

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.
