Friday 12 August 2022

The ANU Australian Studies Institute (AuSI) Visiting Fellowship Program 2022 – 23 has commenced, with the first Visiting Fellow, Dr Kate Fitch, joining the Institute last week.

The level of interest in the inaugural round of Fellowships was very high and the quality of the applications uniformly excellent. AuSI awarded 14 Fellowships across a range of disciplines spanning human rights, history, climate change, politics, the environment, Indigenous Australia, bushfire evacuation technology and planetary health.  Applications were received from all continents demonstrating a high-level of interest in Australian Studies globally.

“We are very pleased that so many scholars had an interest in coming to work with us. I’d like to thank each and every applicant and congratulate all of the successful Visiting Fellows in our 2022 - 23 Program. I look forward to collaborating on and promoting research excellence in Australian Studies through this great program.”

- Professor Paul Pickering, Director, ANU Australian Studies Institute

The 2022 – 23 Visiting Fellowship Program was officially launched by ANU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian P. Schmidt, at the April Visiting Fellows Dinner hosted by the Institute. The Program brings together early and mid-career researchers to conduct innovative research that promotes the study of Australia or transnational and comparative research involving Australia.

Applications for Semester 2 2023 will open in February 2023.
