Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN) Newsletter – 29/04/22

Dear All,

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


ACNZSN is very excited to announce the expansion of the editorial board of its Journal of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies (JACANZS)! Specifically Associate Professor Alex Calder, Professor Tony Hughes-d’Aeth, Dr. Andre Brett, Associate Professor Kate McMillan, Professor Yasmeen Abu-Laban, and Professor Ann McGrath have very kindly agreed to join the board. They bring with them a wealth of expertise in literature, history, politics, and Indigenous studies – all particular strengths of JACANZS. The Editor-in-chief of JACANZS, Dr. Jatinder Mann is confident that they will make an excellent contribution to the continued success of the journal and also very much appreciates the public support of these well-respected established and emerging scholars in the journal.

JACANZS is now also open to manuscript submissions all year round. You can submit your manuscript at any point in the year and depending on how long a successful double, blind, peer review takes and any subsequent required revisions, your article will be published in the next issue. JACANZS has a list of Books for Review if anyone is interested in reviewing them. If you are please contact the Book Reviews Editor, Ms. Emily Cornish at

ACNZSN was saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. James Jupp, a towering figure in the study of Australian immigration. I personally recall that James kindly agreed to be a supervisor of my Ph.D. for my application at the Australian National University many moons ago. Although I ended up doing my Ph.D. at the University of Sydney, I was very grateful for his support. And the first of sixty book reviews that I have written in my career was actually on James’ wonderful book: From White Australia to Woomera: The Story of Australian Immigration.

You can watch Craig Foster AM’s fantastic ANU Australian Studies Institute ‘Australia and the World’ Annual Lecture on ‘Human Rights, Democracy and Global Citizenry – Recovering Australia’s Humanity and Place in the World’ which was given at the National Press Club of Australia on 23 March 2022 here.
