Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN) Newsletter – 18/09/20

Dear All,

Please find below the latest news, opportunities, and publications in Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies. There are especially quite a few positions that have been advertised at Carleton University in Canada 🙂

News:

ACNZSN is very pleased to announce that Carwyn Jones of the Te Kauhanganui Tātai Ture Faculty of Law at the Te Herenga Waka Victoria University of Wellington in Aotearoa New Zealand has kindly agreed to become a public supporter of the network and join the editorial board of the new Journal of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies (JACANZS) 🙂 I am confident that Carwyn’s expertise will be of a huge benefit to both ACNZSN and JACANZS! Kia ora to Carwyn 🙂 

ACNZSN is also excited to announce a call for papers for a collection on A History of the British World: New Voices and Perspectives, edited by Jatinder Mann and Iain Johnston-White. The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 31 December 2020.

There have also been some recent additions to the ‘Publications’ section of the ACNZSN website, so please do check them out 🙂
