2020 Judith Binney Fellowship and Writing Awards applications open

The Judith Binney Fellowship is available for an established scholar to undertake or complete significant research. The Writing Award is for an emerging scholar, or for the beginning or completion of a project.

The Fellowships and Writing Awards support research and writing on New Zealand history or associated topics. This might include: social history; women’s history; nineteenth- and twentieth-century histories; Māori history; recent social, economic or political history; and historical interests arising from New Zealand archaeology, anthropology, and material culture.

The Judith Binney Fellowships and Writing Awards honour the contribution made by the late Dame Judith Binney / Te Tōmairangi o Te Aroha to our understanding of New Zealand’s rich history and will support research and writing that expands our understanding of the history of these islands.

The inaugural 2019 recipient of the Judith Binney Fellowship was Dr Nēpia Mahuika (Ngāti Porou), Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Waikato.  Three Judith Binney Writing Awards went to: Ryan Bodman, Morgan Godfery and Dr Melissa Matutina Williams (Te Rarawa, Ngāti Maru). More information about the successful applicants can be found on the Judith Binney Trust website.
