The University of Newcastle’s cluster for Historical, Cultural and Critical Inquiry fosters collaborations between scholars in Ancient History, History and Studies of Religion. Each year we curate a suite of public lectures, seminars, conferences, podcasts, our finest student projects, new academic publications, as well as open access and university degree level courses. Our areas of expertise feature prominently in the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degrees, where the largest course in Australian history features. In order to enrich our region’s cultural heritage we network with other researchers as well as with a variety of organisations from Newcastle through to the rest of the world. Our research collaborations include the Centre for the Study of Violence and the Wine Studies Research Network. Recent projects include the Dictionary of Newcastle as well as the widely publicized Colonial Frontier Massacre Map.
