2014 Rydon Fellow in Australian Politics and Political History, King's College London

Eureka Henrich is a historian interested in migration, museums, memory and identity. Her PhD thesis, which tracked how Australian museums exhibited migration histories in the last quarter of the twentieth century, was awarded the UNSW Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Best Doctoral Thesis Prize for 2012. Eureka held an Australian Postgraduate Award for the duration of her doctoral studies.

In 2008 she won the Frank Crowley Australian History Prize for her honours thesis, which was a social history of Sydney's Ragged Schools in the mid 19th century.

Current projects include a chapter on the memorialisation of migration at museum sites for the forthcoming publication 'Migration and Culture: Politics, Aesthetics and History' and the conversion of her doctoral research into a book manuscript.

Eureka is based in the UK where she is the 2014 Rydon Fellow in Australian Politics and Political History at the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies at King's College London, and a researcher on the ERC-funded CArchipelago project at the University of Leicester.
