The Gollan Prize for Australian Labour History

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 biannual basis.

The Prize is intended to foster the work of new scholars embarking on their careers as labour historians. As such it is awarded to those published in Labour History who, at the time of submitting their article, were either post-graduate students or early career academics (within 5 years of receiving a PhD). Members of the journal’s Editorial Working Party are not eligible.

The Prize consists of a citation and a contribution of up to $600 towards expenses relating to attendance at the biannual conference of the Society where the citation will be read and presented. The responsibility for choosing the winning article and drafting the citation rests with the journal’s editorial working party who then confer with further referees where appropriate.
