Australian Policy and History (APH) is pleased to announce the recipients of nine Australian Policy and History/Copyright Agency Limited Internships. These internships, part of APH’s career development programme, are designed to help ten early-career historians to enhance their writing skills and publication record through the development of individual research projects. Members of the Australian Policy & History Network are mentoring these as they develop a research project that links historical inquiry and practice with current affairs. The final papers resulting from this project will be submitted for consideration for publication with APH in 2013.
