The major focus of each entry will be upon an individual's parliamentary and political life. Entries will range in length from 750 to 3500 words and will include a photograph and an abbreviated parliamentary chronology. The Biographical Dictionary of the Australian Senate will make a scholarly contribution to parliamentary as well as historical knowledge.
We invite historians, biographers and those with an interest in political, social and constitutional history to contact the Research Section in the Department of the Senate if they wish to contribute to what will be a work of some significance.
Anticipated publication date for Volume One is 1996.
