And that’s not all…

As well as getting the material ready for the Dictionary’s regeneration (which is taking place now over at Arts eResearch), we’ve been working hard on our more academic outlet, the Sydney Journal.

The new issue has just been published, with a wonderful photo by Danny Huynh on our ‘cover’.

The issue includes work on tourism in Sydney by Richard White and Justine Greenwood, Kate Matthew‘s work on the role of governesses, and the story of the arrival of Sydney’s first ice by Nigel Isaacs.

The Greeks and the Russians, both longstanding parts of Sydney’s mix, have been chronicled by Panayiotis Diamadis and Mara Moustafine respectively.

And we showcase some suburb entries from the Dictionary: Botany, Cockatoo Island, Eastwood, Glebe, and St Johns Park.

Click over and have a look at the range and scope of work produced by Sydney’s historians. It continues to amaze us!
