Please find below the latest news, opportunities, and publications in Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies. It is especially good to see jobs advertised apart from Canada 🙂 This will also be the last ACNZSN fortnightly newsletter of 2020 as in two weeks time it will be Christmas Day, and as dedicated as I am to the network, I plan on spending the day with my family here in Hong Kong 🙂
The Australian Centre for Public History at University Technology Sydney has a Research Assistant Database for any research project investigators looking for research assistants.

The Canadian Historical Association (CHA) has created a special emergency fund for graduate students (to a maximum of $500 per applicant) who are CHA members in good standing to conduct primary archival research in the amount of $10,000.00. The fund will be distributed in January 2021 (up to a maximum of $5,000 based on the number of qualified applications received) and June 2021 (up to a maximum of $5,000 based on the number of qualified applications received). The fund is open to all graduate students who are members in good standing of the CHA, although preference will be given to PhD students who have finished their exams and are working on their thesis. The application deadlines are 22 January and 25 June 2021. The CHA Treasurer is responsible for overseeing the distribution of the funds. Decisions will be communicated at the end of January and again at the end of June. For further details log-on as a member on the CHA website.

For ACNZSN to work as well it can, it will be great to receive contributions from its supporters 🙂 I would also encourage you to subscribe to its blog (so you are able to receive this newsletter directly into your Inbox), and follow/or like its social media platforms on Facebook and Twitter.
All that is left for me to say is Happy Holidays to you all from ACNZSN! 2020 has been a real stinker of a year, overshadowed by the Covid-19 pandemic…But the creation of ACNZSN was for me personally quite a bright spot professionally in what has been a dark year. I am truly grateful for the positive feedback that I have received from people all over the world about the network, and also the appreciation for my efforts in sharing news, opportunities, and publications in Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies 🙂 After a well-deserved break over Christmas and New Year’s I look forward to returning to work on ACNZSN in the new year, and 2021 promises to be an exciting one for the network! 🙂
