The Dean, on behalf of the Faculty of Arts, congratulates Professor Jenny Hocking on the shortlisting of her biography Gough Whitlam: His Time (MUP/Miegunyah Press 2012) for the 2013 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards, Australian History Prize .
This is a tribute to the high standard of scholarship, ground-breaking research and hard work that Professor Hocking has invested in this innovative ARC Linkage project based in the National Centre for Australian Studies (with Partner Organisations the National Library of Australia and the National Archives of Australia).
From children’s books that excel in the art of storytelling, through to revealing works of non-fiction and history, the 2013 shortlists represent the breadth and depth of the Australian story, and imagination. The Prime Minister and Minister commended the quality and diversity of entries, noting the evolving richness of Australia’s literary sector.
The Dean also extends her congratulations to Professor Hocking’s research assistant Clare Land and to Professor Hocking’s publisher Monash University Press.
