Welcome to the National Labour History Conference eBulletins
#2 Tuesday 14 June
(1) Click here for details on the Some More Rough Reds section of the conference program.
(2) Paper Presentations. Paper presentations will be for 20 minutes. The rooms vary in the equipment so it will be assumed that you will be using overhead projectors unless there is a specific and essential requirement for Powerpoint. I have received only a small number of requests for powerpoint so far and these can be accomodated due to special requirements such as access to audio and the net. If it is absolutely essential to use powerpoint please contact me by the close of business on Friday (Sydney time). Otherwise we would appreciate it greatly if you can use overheads.
(3) Conference Bags and Satchels. If you are interested in putting material in the conference bags and satchels please contact asap and we will see if we can help. The deadline for the receipt of such material for conference bags/satchels is close of business on Friday 24 June.
