Welcome to the National Centre of Biography

The National Centre of Biography was established in June 2008 in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University to act as a centre of activity for all those writing and reading biography in Australia and beyond.

Our aim is to develop a community of scholars, writers, students, and readers of biography. As well as producing the Australian Dictionary of Biography, we will be organising conferences and seminars, publishing new work, enrolling PhD students and hosting biography fellows.

We invite you to be part of our biographical endeavour.
