The Court as Archive will be launched by The Hon. Justice Susan Kenny of the Federal Court of Australia on Monday 25 March 2019 at 5:30 at the Federal Court of Australia - 305 William St Melbourne. RSVP online

The Court as Archive edited by Ann Genovese, Trish Luker and Kim Rubenstein, represents the first scholarly investigation in Australia of the role of the federal superior courts of record as significant national archives. Federal superior courts record the claims and disputes of a diverse society. They also create, curate and administer access to an archive of public records of immense social, cultural and national significance.

The contributions to this book seek to clarify the legal and civic responsibilities of superior courts, offering accounts of the archive’s significance, and assisting in the development of set principles for the future development and administration of Australian courts as archives.

In the Media

The Sydney Morning Herald published an article about author Michael Braby’s Atlas of Butterflies and Diurnal Moths in the Monsoon Tropics of Northern Australia. You can read the article on the SMH website.

Rosalie Gascoigne is a landmark figure in Australian art and we are extremely excited to be publishing her complete catalogue with exclusive extras later this year. An article has been published in the latest issue of ANU Reporter that touches on Rosalie’s incredible history of becoming a celebrated artist, with input from her son Martin on the process of putting this catalogue together.

Academic Presses have been featured heavily in the media this year with changes to the dissemination of scholarly publishing moving towards open-access models like ANU Press’. As James Fox and Colin Steele state ‘Unlike other publishers, where books can go out of print, all ANU Press titles remain available and immediately accessible. For students in the Third World and especially in the Asia-Pacific region, this access is critical. ANU Press has positioned itself within the digital open-access revolution that is today transforming scholarly communication’. Read the full article in The Australian (subscription required)
