Are you currently
- Researching in the field of Indigenous historical studies? and
- Want to learn about how to publish your work in Aboriginal History?
In celebration of 40 years of Aboriginal History Journal the Aboriginal History Inc. and the School of History, College of Arts and Social Sciences at The Australian National University invite applications to attend an intensive masterclass and workshops on writing and publishing to be held in Canberra on 27 October 2017.
Past and present editors of Aboriginal History, and current Board members, will lead discussions on turning your research into an article for submission to the journal or a book proposal for Aboriginal History’s monograph series. We will also provide you with the opportunity to join smaller groups to workshop work-in-progress and/or draft papers.
Participants are also invited to stay on for a series of roundtable discussions commemorating Aboriginal History’s past, present and future followed by a celebratory dinner. Confirmed speakers for the afternoon symposium include Professor Lyndall Ryan, Professor Jeremy Beckett and Professor John Maynard, who have all contributed to the journal’s history.
Masterclass/workshop presenters will include former and current editors Professor Peter Read (ANU), Professor Ann McGrath (ANU), Dr Ingereth Macfarlane (ANU), Dr Rani Kerin (Monash University), Dr Liz Conor (La Trobe) and Dr Maria Nugent (ANU).
Some financial support will be available to participants from outside Canberra. This will consist of a return discount air or bus fare plus a contribution towards accommodation expenses in Canberra.
The workshop is open to higher degree research students and early career researchers (within five years of graduation) in Indigenous history and related fields. The number of places are limited. There is no registration fee.
Deadline for applications: 8 September 2017.
Please provide the following:
- A brief curriculum vitae
- Two short statements together totalling no more than 500 words: one explaining the subject (or likely subject) of an article for submission to Aboriginal History; the other describing what you hope to gain from this masterclass. These statements will guide selection and also help us to design the event around your interests.
Please e-mail your application to Dr Maria Nugent in the School of History, ANU: firstname.lastname@example.org. Enquiries about the masterclass may also be directed Maria. We look forward to hearing from you!
