THRA's journal is a gold mine
Sixty years of research. Two million words.
THRA's Journal Papers and Proceedings spans sixty years of research into Tasmania's history. It contains more than two million words in 500 articles and they are all indexed and fully searchable.
Papers and Proceedings provided a key to Geoffrey Blainey's seminal history: The Tyranny of Distance. All of the following eminent historians and writers with historical interests have published in Papers & Proceedings:
Marilyn Lake, Eric Rolls, Lyndall Ryan, Henry Reynolds, Marjorie Tipping, Ken Inglis, Peter Pierce, Stuart Macintyre, Janet McCalman, Alex Castles, N.J.B. Plomley, Nicholas Shakespeare, Henry Stokes, Enid Campbell, Peter Reeves, Joan Kerr, Geoffrey Serle and John McCarty.
Published since THRA's foundation, Papers and Proceedings appears three times a year and each issue contains at least three substantial papers. A wide variety of subjects — people, places and periods — all related to Tasmanian history are explored. Some of the papers have been presented at Association meetings. Others have been submitted independently. Papers and Proceedings also reviews books published about Tasmanian history. Many back volumes are still available for sale in our shop. Individual articles may be purchased on the INFORMIT website.
