Upcoming Events

Seminar Series and Talks

Auckland Libraries: Heritage Talks / Waha Pū-Taonga
Event Description: These talks are presented fortnightly on a Wednesday at 12 noon NZT from February to November, and topics cover a wide range of subjects relation to history. Social, local and family history, New Zealand, Australian and world history. Sometimes if something special is offered, we also schedule talks on the “off” Wednesday.
Speakers are a mix of amateur and professional historians, archivists, librarians, museum specialists, authors and academics.
Our talks are held in-person (subject to the COVID restrictions), and also held live via Zoom. We have been streaming our talks via Zoom since the first lockdown in March 2020, and they have been very successful. This means that our talks can still go-ahead even if we have a lockdown. Also we are really fortunate that this also means that our guest speakers don’t have to be in Auckland, nor even in New Zealand! Our audience is also much more geographically diverse.
CFP: Heritage Talks is also seeking speakers for the second half of the year – June to November.
When: Wednesday at 12 noon NZT from February to November. Programme available here.
