Auckland Libraries: Auckland's past

Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland's past

Wednesday 19 February 12pm to 1pm Free

Join the 2020 AHI Summer Scholars to see what they have discovered about Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland's past and the rich resources we have in our region that assisted them with their research.

The Auckland History Initiative (AHI), a research collaboration at the University of Auckland, presents a series of research projects from the 2020 Summer Scholars, exploring aspects of Auckland's history. 

These students have spent 12 weeks over the summer break researching in the varied and rich archives around Auckland under the supervision of Professor Linda Bryder. The AHI views the Summer Research Scholarships as an integral way to engage students in Auckland history and to strengthen relationships with the Auckland GLAMR (Galleries, libraries, archives, museums and records) sector.
