The History Council of South Australia (HCSA) is a peak body, providing a representative voice on historical issues, while working to celebrate and raise the profile of history in South Australia. Incorporated since 2003, HCSA evolved from an informal ‘History Alliance’ initiated by the History Teachers Association of SA in the mid-1990s. Our organisation members include the main bodies concerned with history in this state and many regional historical societies; there is also provision for individual membership.
These annual awards honour the achievements of South Australian historians. Three awards and an essay prize recognise individuals for outstanding research and scholarship and acknowledge their broader contribution through teaching, leadership, mentoring and community involvement. The closing date for award nominations is 31 May 2013.
