Our 2012-2013 Summer Scholars recently presented their final reports to the CSU Regional Archives Advisory Committee and honorary guests.
Anna Henry, a Master of Information Studies student, whose Scholarship was funded by the Charles Sturt University School of Information Studies, processed a collection of papers, photographs and cassette tapes belonging to the Booranga Writers’ Centre.
Through the collection, Anna traced the history of the Wagga Wagga Writers Writers, from their beginnings as a public readings and poetry performance group, to the creation of the Booranga Writers’ Centre as a local publishing group, writers’ retreat, and coordinator of workshops and events.
Bernard Sullivan is currently undertaking a PhD within the Charles Sturt University Faculty of Arts. His Scholarship, funded by the Faculty of Arts and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, was concerned with researching the relationship that the people of Wagga Wagga have had with the Murrumbidgee River and wetlands.
These reports, as well as those of previous Summer Scholars, can be found on our Summer Scholarship webpage.
