Writing our future : towards an organisational history of the Australian Association of Writing Programs
conference contributionposted on 2017-12-06, 00:00 authored by Donna BrienDonna Brien
At the thirteenth annual conference of the Australian Association of Writing Programs in 2008, the author suggested that a history should mark the fifteenth anniversary of the organisation in 2011, and proposed to begin researching and writing such a history. This proposal was endorsed by the Committee of Management at that conference. This paper presents the first steps towards producing a history of the AAWP, framed by the recent calls for a ‘turn to history’ in the study of organisations (Clark and Rowlinson 2004; Üsdken, Behlül & Alfred Kieser 2004; Booth and Rowlinson 2006) and the author’s research into the practice of writing organisational history writing.
