James MacGinley Award for Australian Catholic History Closes 28 February 2022.

Dr Rosa MacGinley PBVM was an eminent historian of women religious and co-founder of the Golding Centre for Women’s History, Theology and Spirituality at the Australian Catholic University. The MacGinley Award was established by Rosa MacGinley’s family in honour of their late father, James, who fostered their love of history by reading to them as children. Prior to her death, Rosa MacGinley was a long-standing councillor of the Australian Catholic Historical Society. Building on the legacy of Rosa MacGinley, the Australian Catholic Historical Society welcomes applications for this prestigious award. Submissions may be a biographical, social, cultural, institutional, or political study of Australian Catholic history, which demonstrates originality, excellence in addressing its subject, competence in the use of primary source materials, and clarity of expression. The paper must not have been submitted for publication.

Full conditions of the $1000 award are available here.
