ANU Historical Journal II

The ANU Historical Journal II (ANUHJ II) is an open-access, peer-reviewed academic history journal of the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences and the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific. It is a revival of the ANU Historical Journal, which was published between 1964 and 1987. Contributors to the first journal included academics such as Ken Inglis, Manning Clark, John Ritchie and Oliver MacDonagh along with then-emerging scholars Iain McCalman, Michael McKernan, Margaret George, Coral Bell, John Iremonger, Alastair Davidson, Susan Magarey and Rosemary Auchmuty. As well as upholding the Journal’s commitment to the work of students and early career researchers, the ANUHJ II has expanded its focus to include memoirs, short articles and long-form book reviews.

The ANUHJ II invites submissions from students, graduates and academics of any Australian university.
