We are delighted to announce the recipients of this year’s Publication Subsidy Scheme. One of the Academy’s longest-standing initiatives in supporting scholarly work in the Humanities, the Publication Subsidy Scheme assists Australia-based scholars with the costs associated with the publication of their research.
The forthcoming publications from this year’s recipients span a number of humanities disciplines including art history, visual arts, film studies, gender studies, Australian and European history and East Asian studies, and will be published by major presses both within Australia and internationally.
Awards Committee member Professor Terri-ann White FAHA remarked that “the Committee was impressed by the applications received for publication support, recognising an extraordinary diversity of specialist publications and general-readership opportunities for Australian-based research to be disseminated. The competition was tough but gave the committee members a great snapshot of the vibrancy of scholarly work, as well as putting paid to the myth of the ‘death of the book.’”
We congratulate the following recipients and are proud to support their projects.
