In Memoriam Veronica Brady

Dear EASA members and friends,

 

I am very sorry to inform you that our dearest colleague and friend Veronica Brady passed away last August. She was, without doubt, a beacon for many of us, a presence, a role model, a free spirit whom we will never forget. If only there were more academics like her!

 

The following vale for Veronica was written by Dennis Haskell.

 

Best wishes,
Lola Herrero
EASA Secretary

The International Australian Studies Association (InASA) was formed in 1995,

in recognition that Australian studies is an international enterprise with Australian studies centres
and professional associations throughout Asia, Europe and North America.

InASA’s aim is to promote links between the Australian and international Australian studies communities,
and to lobby Federal and State governments to support the development of Australian studies internationally.

New EASA Board (Post-Conference Letter from the Secretary)

Dear EASA members,

I hope that this message finds you all well.

As many of you may already know, the AGM at Presov, which was placed under
severe constraints in view of the meagre turn-up for the Slovakian conference,
failed to elect a new Treasurer after the current one, Eleonore Wildburger from
Klagenfurt, has handed in her resignation in that capacity.

After the necessary exchange of e-mails between the colleagues who were elected
as members of the new Board at the Presov AGM, this problem was finally solved.
