2017 is a significant year for motor vehicle manufacture in Australia with the closure of the last Holden plant at Elizabeth. To recognise that event and to acknowledge the important work of restoration and the preservation of motor vehicles by private owners and in motor museums the theme of the 2017 Automotive Historians Australia Conference is: OUR MOTORING HERITAGE.

Papers are sought that address the broad theme in one or more of the following ways:

  • The significance of vehicle manufacturing in Australia with respect to its economic and social impacts
  • The significance of Holden to Australian society and culture
  • The restoration of vehicles including methods, philosophical debates around restoration and curatorial policy, technology and design
  • Curatorial practices and museum directions including display, social history in motor museums, collection policy and new museology for the collection and exhibition of Australian motoring heritage
  • The ephemeral heritage of the motoring life, which may include for example motoring advertisements, posters, art work, popular culture, literary expression, the products of support industries
  • International automotive heritage, which may include for example international museological practice in motor museums, international motoring manufacture, the preservation of motoring heritage in an international context.
  • Design heritage including automotive design, the architecture of the roadside to support motoring culture and the ways in which we record and engage with design heritage.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted to the organising committee by Thursday 29 June 2017. Abstracts will be blind reviewed by at least two members of the Conference Academic Committee. Full papers will be presented at the conference (20 minutes presentation, 10 minutes for questions). A selection of the best papers will be invited to be submitted (4500 words, including notes) to be published in an edited volume by the Automotive Historians Australia post conference.
