Honours student publishes paper on Indigenous policy-making
Monday 9 August 2021

Eleanor Foster, an honours student in the School of History, wrote a paper in 2020 for Professor Carolyn Strange's course Human Rights in History (HIST2238). The essay addressed the history of Indigenous policy-making.

Working under the supervision of Professor Angela Woolacott, and benefiting from the feedback of peers, Eleanor submitted a revised version to the peer-reviewed Journal of Australian Studies.
The article has just appeared as: '“A Healthy Nationalism”: The Inclusion of Indigenous Australians in the Federal Cultural Policymaking of the 1960s and 1970s.'

Eleanor has said 'This experience would not have been possible without the historical training and supervision provided by the School of History, and I am continually grateful for this network as I undertake my Honours thesis.'
