SLNSW announces 2018 fellows

The recipients of the State Library of New South Wales (SLNSW) 2018 fellowships have been announced.

Author and historian Grace Karskens is the recipient of the $75,000 Coral Thomas Fellowship for her research project ‘The Real Secret River, Dyarubbin’, which will tell ‘new cross-cultural and environmental stories about one of Australia’s most beautiful and historically significant rivers: Dyarubbin, the Hawkesbury River’.

Inaugurated in 2015 and awarded biennially, the Coral Thomas Fellowship ‘encourages deep and focused research into Australian culture, history and society’.

The SLNSW also announced the recipients of its annual fellowships. Neil James was awarded the $20,000 Nancy Keesing Fellowship for his project ‘The A&R Century: A History of Angus & Robertson’, which will draw on the library’s A&R archives to explore how the Australian publisher reflected and shaped the country’s culture and identity.

The other 2018 fellows are: James Keating for the project ‘Linda Littlejohn: Australia’s Forgotten Feminist’; Julie McIntyre for the project ‘William Macarthur, James King and the Australian Agricultural Modernity’; Timothy Stanley for the project ‘Religious Print after the Enlightenment’; and Emma Christopher for the project ‘Sugar and Slavery: An Australian Legacy?’
