NSW Premier's History Awards Presentation 2018
Celebrate history! Join us as we announce the winners of the NSW Premier’s History Awards and launch History Week.
The History Awards, first presented in 1997, honour the distinguished achievement in history writing by Australians. As well as assisting in establishing the values and standards in historical research and publication, the awards encourage everyone to enjoy and learn from the work of our historians.
The NSW Premier’s History Awards Address will be delivered by Professor Grace Karskens. Professor Karskens is a leading historian of colonial NSW, author of the acclaimed book The Colony: A History of Early Sydney and the State Library of NSW’s Coral Thomas Fellow.
Doors will open at 6pm, and official proceedings will commence at 6:30pm. The official proceedings and announcement of the winners will be followed by a drinks reception.
