Scott Stephenson has been awarded the 2015 Gollan Prize for his article, “‘Ballot-Faking Crooks and a Tyrannical Executive’: The Australian Workers Union Faction and the 1923 New South Wales Labor Party Annual Conference”, Labour History, no. 105, November 2013, pp.93-111.
The Gollan prize was established in 2003 in honour of Robin and Daphne Gollan, founding members of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History and amongst the first contributors to our journal. It is awarded on a biennial basis and the judges are the President of the ASSLH and the Editor of Labour History.
The Prize is intended to foster the work of new scholars embarking on their careers as labour historians. As such it is awarded to postgraduate students or early career researchers whose work is published in the journal.
This prize will give Scott a free annual subscription to the journal and up to $600 towards expenses relating to attendance at the biennial conference of the Society to be held in Melbourne in February 2015 (http://labourhistorymelbourne.org/2015conference/).
