Welcome to H-ANZAU, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-ANZAU encourages scholarly discussion of the history and culture of Aotearoa / New Zealand, Australia and Oceania. H-ANZAU's online editors and editorial board serve a broad intellectual community.

 

Below you will find a constantly updated list of newly published books in Australian and New Zealand Studies. The list includes books streaming from the H-Net Book Channel and new book announcements posted to H-ANZAU by subscribers. Next to books are all the announcements and discussions we encourage here. You can find CFPs in the link on the right side of this page, under H-ANZAU Resources.

 

H-ANZAU is planning to offer new resources for scholars, students and anyone else interested in the history and culture of Aotearoa/New Zealand, Australia, and Oceania in the near future.

 

As part of this, we would welcome your views on what you would like to see as part of this network, and are especially keen to hear from anyone willing to play an active role in developing new online materials and resources for the field.
