RSH 2009 Visiting Fellowship Program
Research School of Humanities, College of Arts and Social Sciences, The Australian National University

The Research School of Humanities has been established by the Australian National University in 2007 by amalgamating four key Centres of the University – the renowned Humanities Research Centre, the Centre for Cross Cultural Research, the National Europe Centre and the Australian National Dictionary Centre.

The RSH builds on research fostered by these Centres and seeks to promote innovative research in the Humanities. Its Visiting Fellowship program is an enhancement of the program offered by the HRC since the 1970s and provides funds to support scholars to work in the Research School.

Applications are particularly welcome from scholars with interests in one or more of the RSH’s research platforms and especially from those whose current projects relate to the RSH 2009 Annual Theme of ‘Cosmopolitanisms’. Applications for fellowships to the Freilich Foundation to work in the area of bigotry and tolerance are also welcomed

  • Biography and Society
  • Visual Culture
  • Museums and Collections
  • Public Memory and Historical Re-enactment
