Registration for Historical Materialism Melbourne is now open here.

HM Melbourne is committed to ensuring that the conference is open to all who wish to attend. As such, we have strived to make the conference as affordable as possible. Registration is $60 waged or $40 unwaged. Supports of the conference can buy tickets at a solidarity price of $100.

If this price remains out of reach, please contact the organisers at 


HM Melbourne is entirely volunteer-run and this has made providing professional childcare difficult for us given the cost and liabilities involved. The organisers are conscious, however, that a lack of available childcare might stop some people from presenting at or attending sessions.

If you are in this situation, please email the organisers at so that we can discuss what options there may be. Children are of course welcome to attend conference sessions with attendees.
