The AHA would like to thank all who applied for the 2021 NAA/AHA Postgraduate Scholarships, which provide assistance with digitisation of material held by the National Archives. The NAA noted the successful projects ‘are intriguing and will add considerable research into and knowledge of a diversity of migrations to Australia from the late 19th century through to the 1970s,’ and we congratulate the four recipients:
- Vashti Fox for the project “’Never Again’: Antifascism in Post War Australia (1955-2018)
- Marcus James for ‘Mechanics Fleeing Communism: the Russian Refugee Diaspora in Iran and its Resettlement in Australia, 1930-1960′;
- Julian Kusabs for ‘A Comparative History of Citizenship Education for Māori, Aboriginal, and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’; and
- Louise Thatcher for the project ‘Spaces of Bordering along the Shipping Routes between Bremen and Australia across the late 19th and early 20th centuries’.
