Booker Prize winner and “national treasure”, Thomas Kenneally, has been appointed a Professorial Fellow at UniSA.
Author of more than 30 novels, and many more dramas, screenplays and books of non-fiction, Kenneally is best known for his Booker Prize winning Schindler’s Ark, later adapted into the Academy Award winning film Schindler’s List.
The three-year Fellowship will see Kenneally deliver masterclasses at UniSA from 2018, providing invaluable insights for students of creative writing and literature.
UniSA Vice Chancellor Professor David Lloyd describes the appointment as an excellent opportunity for students to benefit from the wisdom, talent, insights and experience of one of Australia’s most successful authors.
“Tom’s works have helped to define the experience of Australia – the landscape, the history, the people,” Prof Lloyd says.
