Join us for a glittering evening as we announce the winners of the 2018 NSW Premier’s History Awards and officially launch History Week 2018.

The NSW Premier’s History Awards were first presented in 1997 to honour distinguished achievements in history by Australian authors. They assist in establishing values and standards in historical research and publication, and encourage everyone to appreciate and learn from the work of our historians. The NSW Premier’s History Awards Address will be delivered by Professor Grace Karskens. Professor Karskens is a leading historian of colonial NSW, author of the acclaimed book The Colony: A History of Early Sydney and the State Library of NSW’s Coral Thomas Fellow.

The winners of the 2018 NSW Premier’s History Awards will be announced at a presentation and cocktail reception event held in the State Library of NSW’s historic Mitchell Building. Read the full list of nominated works here, or at the button above.
