The History Council of South Australia (HCSA) speaks for history in this state.  We are the peak body in South Australia, providing a representative voice on historical issues, celebrating and raising the profile of history in South Australia. Incorporated in 2003, HCSA evolved from an informal 'History Alliance' initiated by the History Teachers Association of SA in the mid-1990s. Our organisation members include the main bodies concerned with history in this state and many regional historical societies; there is also provision for individual membership.

Congratuations to 2014 Wakefield Prize  joint winners: Carmel Pascale from the University of Adelaide and Yianni (John) Cartledge from Flinders University.


**Nominations are now open for the 2015 South Australian History Awards

These annual awards honour the achievements of South Australian historians. Three awards and an essay prize recognise individuals for outstanding research and scholarship and acknowledge their broader contribution through teaching, leadership, mentoring and community involvement.
