VISITING FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM - Humanities Research Centre, ANU (Closing date: 5 Jan 2007)

The Humanities Research Centre was established by the Australian National University in 1972 to foster innovative research in the Humanities and provides funds to support both scholars of demonstrated achievement and promising younger scholars to work in the Centre.

Applications are particularly welcomed from scholars with interests in one or more of the HRC's Research Platforms:
Applications for fellowships to the Freilich Foundation to work in the area of bigotry and tolerance are also welcomed.

The Freilich Foundation exists for the study of, and research into, the causes, the histories and the effects of ethnic, cultural, religious and sexual bigotry and animosity, and the exploration of how such intolerance can be combated - and co-existence promoted - by educational and social programs. Formally established in July 1999, and part of the Humanities Research Centre of ANU, the Freilich Foundation supports individual research and runs a range of lectures, conferences and seminars. The Foundation also runs a range of activities to support schools, including a biennial summer school. In 2008 the Foundation will be involved with the Recovering Lives conference and the Limits of Being Human conference.

List of 2008 HRC Conferences and their descriptions are available HERE.

The HRC will fund a number of short-term Visiting Fellows (of up to 12 weeks) to take up residence at the HRC. The Freilich Foundation will fund a few scholars (up to 12 weeks).

Scholars usually concentrate upon a particular Research Platform, although we also welcome non-thematic scholars.
