Launched in 2018, the Australian Academy of the Humanities Annual Book List celebrates and promotes books published by the Fellowship and our grants and awards alumni within the last 18 months.

Previously, the Academy’s flagship journal Humanities Australia has included an ‘Ex Libris’ section with images of a few of the many books published by Academy Fellows in the previous year. The Annual Academy Book List offers a much more extended display of books, and includes not just an image of the cover, but also a short synopsis, and a link to the publisher’s website.

The Annual Book List covers the full spectrum of humanities disciplines is divided into four categories – authored and co-authored books, edited collections, books by our grants and awards alumni, and books that have been shortlisted for or have won prizes including the Academy’s Medal for Excellence in Translation.
