Congratulations to all our History Prize and Scholarship winners, who were recognised in a special School of Humanities event last Tuesday evening at the Women’s College.
Students from all levels – first, second, third and fourth year, as well as Honours and Postgrad students collected prizes and scholarships – and History probably has more prizes up for grabs than any other discipline in the School.
Fourth-year History Student Darcy Campbell, who won two prizes on the night, gave an excellent and impassioned speech about the importance of History, particularly in regional Australia. You can listen to Darcy’s speech at 45:50 of this link
You can also listen to Michael McDonnell’s defence of History and the Humanities and the excellent qualities of all of our students starting at 32:25 of the same video, followed by the award of all the History prizes.
There is also photo gallery video of the Awards Night which runs for just over 3 mins. You can view it here: https://youtu.be/_D25e9IS9mA
Here is also a link to the School of Humanities Prize Night booklet, which lists the names of all our History award winners from pages 6-8, and you can find a description of the many prizes on pages 16-19 https://indd.adobe.com/view/aa690300-07d1-4770-b2e2-b26d4ce8020f
Again, congratulations to all – and we look forward to seeing many new faces at the Prize ceremony next year!
