ACH: International Journal of Culture and History in Australia continues to be produced by the API Network and publishes work on the history of culture in Australia written from a wide range of disciplinary standpoints, including those of history, literary studies, art history, education, cultural studies, Australian studies, medicine, psychology, mathematics, the sciences and social sciences, politics, and law.
Its aim is to stimulate critical, scholarly inquiry into culture in Australia by juxtaposing historical and contemporary studies, disciplinary approaches, and national and international perspectives. The journal welcomes papers which will be read with profit and interest by scholars outside the author's immediate field, and which address general readers as well as academic readers.
