Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN) Newsletter – 31/08/22

Dear All,

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


I thought I would start with some personal, life changing news. Despite my best efforts over the past nearly year, I have been unable to secure a new academic position. And I have thrown the metaphorical kitchen sink at it, but to no avail. So, I have decided to retrain and start a new career. The career I’ve chosen, which is actually something that has always been of interest to me is law. I will be studying to become a qualified lawyer 🙂 Although I am a little scared at returning to university as a student after such a long time, I am more excited at having a new challenge, getting my teeth into something new, and learning something completely different 🙂 I will however, still be keeping a foot in academia with ACNZSN (although this newsletter may very well have to become a bi-monthly one rather than monthly), the Journal of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies, and my ‘Studies in Transnationalism’ book series. And anyone working with me on publications in progress should rest assured that I will see them to fruition. They might just take a little longer 🙂
