ARC grant success[21 November 2016]
History at Sydney did exceptionally well in the latest round of Australian Research Council funding, announced in November 2016. History staff won five of the sixteen Discovery grants awarded to members of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Historians were responsible for 9% of all the Discovery Projects received by the University of Sydney as a whole. The Department of History also received two of the five ARC postdoctoral fellowships won by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Congratulations to David Brophy, Nicholas Eckstein, Andrew Fitzmaurice, John Gagné, Michael McDonnell, and Shane White.
