Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN) Newsletter – 30/04/21

Dear All,

Please find below the latest news, opportunities, and publications in Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies 🙂

 

News:

Just a reminder about the Call for Papers for Volume 1, Issue 2 of ACNZSN’s Journal of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies (JACANZS). The deadline for the submission of manuscripts is 30 June 2021.

ACNZSN is very pleased to announce that the fourth volume in the ‘Studies in Transnationalism’ book series (which is affiliated with the network) has finally been published! It is a wonderful book by Bill Apter entitled Rethinking the Australian Dilemma: Economics and Foreign Policy, 1942-1957. Apter’s book is based on excellent research and has a very engaging narrative. The main theme of his book: the tension between sentiment and interest is also extremely topical, considering the current predicament that Australia faces between its largest trade partner and its long-standing strategic ally. In this sense, Apter’s book provides a very useful historical context to this long-running tension in Australian history.

A Seminar Series on Naturalization will be taking place online at the University of Melbourne between 6 May-3 June 2021. Dr. Jordana Silverstein will be the first speaker and she will be talking about ‘Files, Family, and the Nation’ on 6 May 2021 at 4.30pm (AEST), followed by Dr. Jatinder Mann on ‘The end of the British World and the redefinition of citizenship in Australia, Canada, and Aotearoa New Zealand, 1950s-1970s’ on 13 May 2021 at 4.30pm (AEST). All are welcome.

The second episode of the wonderful ‘Academic Aunties’ podcast created by ACNZSN public supporter, Dr. Ethel Tungohan is now out. In it she has a conversation with Associate Professor Debra Thompson about ‘Subversives in the Academy’.

University of Western Australia Publishing has a excellent new board, headed by Professor Tony Hughes-d’Aeth. You can find more details here.

The Te Hunga Rōia Māori o Aotearoa Māori Law Society’s ‘Māori Lawyers as Agents of Mana-Based Change’ Hui-ā-Tau 2021 Annual Conference 2021 will be taking place on 1-3 July 2021 at Ōtautahi University of Canterbury. Registration is now open for this wonderful event.
