(p.410) Chapter 20 Historical Writing in Australia and New Zealand
The Oxford History of Historical Writing

Stuart Macintyre

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines history writing in Australia and New Zealand. History writing in those regions began under British rule and it adapted British institutions and practices and integrated them with local circumstances. Both countries grew into nationhood while continuing with their ties to Great Britain in terms of trade, investment, migration, defence arrangements, religion, education, culture, and sentiment. The two countries' proximity, interaction, and common endeavours strengthened the similarities in their history and historical writing up to 1945. This chapter also considers that there is an extraordinary similarity in the genres of history written in Australia and New Zealand, such as in the facilities they created for historical scholarship, the way that a historical profession emerged, and the conventions it followed.

Keywords:   Australia, New Zealand, British institutions, Great Britain, historical writing, history, historical scholarship, historical profession
