Magna Carta Panels at the NZ Historical Association Conference

The New Zealand Historical Association (NZHA) will hold a series of panels on Magna Carta at their conference 2-4 December at the University of Canterbury. The call for paper proposals deadline was June 15th.

There will be an exhibition of the University of Canterbury copy of the Magna Carta to coincide with the conference. Plans are well advanced for a postgraduate symposium to be held on 1 December. There are also plans for a ‘mock trial’ of King John’s barons to take place during the conference and a re-enactment of the signing by the society for creative anachronism.
