Renewal of PNG Dictionary of Biography

| Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs


CANBERRA - A call for submissions to participate in the PNG Dictionary of Biography Project is now open.

The project is about documenting and celebrating the lives of Papua New Guinea’s nation builders and we are looking to identify a group of writers to collaborate and conduct historical research about significant and representative Papua New Guineans.

Participants are invited to research and write a short biographical entry of 500–2,000 words for peer review and publication in Volume One of the revitalised PNG Dictionary of Biography, 1975–2025.

In collaboration with scholars at the University of Papua New Guinea and the Australian National University, the project will support writers through this process by sponsoring attendance at biography workshops in Port Moresby, provide mentorship and editorial support, and offer writers a modest honorarium upon submission of their biographical entries.

For further information and application details, link here to Revitalising the PNG Dictionary of Biography.

The project is funded in part by the Australian government through the Pacific Research Program Phase II.

Apply if you are interested and please circulate this information within your networks.
