Congratulations to you both!”

Also nominated for an award is Dr Laura Rademaker for her recent book Found in Translation: Many Meanings on a North Australian Mission. She has also been nominated as part of the Australian History category of the NSW Premier’s History Awards.

Frank Bongiorno also congratulated Dr Rademaker, writing “I offer my warmest congratulations on the School of History’s behalf to Laura Rademaker on the shortlisting of her for the Australian History category in the New South Wales Premier’s History Awards.
