CAUL/ASA Fellowships 2016 announced

The Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) and the Australian Society of Authors (ASA) have announced the winners of the 2016 CAUL/ASA Fellowships, worth $10,000 each.

Founding editor and publisher of the Review of Australian Fiction and Island magazine editor Matthew Lamb was awarded a fellowship to work on his project, ‘A cultural biography of Frank Moorhouse’, using the Fryer Library at University of Queensland.

Charles Sturt University School of Information Studies researcher Jessie Lymn was awarded a fellowship for her project ‘Practices of Australian (fan)zines—uncovering the networks and practises of early Australian fanzines’, using Murdoch library’s ‘unique collection of science fiction fanzines’.

The fellows were selected by a committee chaired by Curtin University librarian Catherine Clark, and included ASA chair David Day and Edith Cowan University librarian Constance Wiebrands.

The fellowships are designed to showcase ‘the richness of special collections in Australian university libraries by providing authors, artists, scholars and researchers with an opportunity to work on projects that will benefit from concentrated access to these collections’.
