AuSI's 2023 International Fellows
Wednesday 29 March 2023

The ANU Australian Studies Institute (AuSI) is delighted to announce the successful Fellows for the 2023 International Fellowships for ANU staff.

AuSI awarded six international Fellowships to ANU academic staff across a number of different areas of the University, including the Crawford School of Public Policy, School of Law, School of History, Centre for Arabic & Islamic Studies, and Centre for Heritage & Museum Studies. This includes:

  • Dr Aditya Balasubramanian (CBE/CASS)
  • Dr Burcu Cevik-Compiegne (CASS)
  • Dr Michael Di Francesco (CAP)
  • Dr Gareth Knapman (CASS)
  • Dr Anne Macduff (CoL)
  • Dr Anton Moiseienko (CoL)

“We are delighted that so many ANU scholars took the opportunity to apply for our International Program in its first year. I’d like to thank each and every applicant and warmly congratulate the successful Fellows. This Fellowship Program is a wonderful opportunity for ANU academic staff conducting innovative research that promotes the study of Australia or transnational and comparative research involving Australia. We are glad to be engaging with our international partners and continuing to carry out our mission to share Australian research and join global conversations.”

- Professor Paul Pickering, Director, ANU Australian Studies Institute

The Fellowships which are offered in collaboration with three of the world’s foremost Australian Studies Centres, allow Fellows to carry out their research project at the Centre for Australian Studies (University of Cologne), the Clark Center for Australian & New Zealand Studies (University of Texas at Austin), or the Menzies Australia Institute (King’s College London).

"I am delighted to be visiting the University of Texas at Austin thanks to the AuSI's fellowship. It is second-to-none as a hub for studying national security law and policy, and I can think of no better place to undertake my comparative research on sanctions."

- Dr Anton Moiseienko, AuSI International Visiting Fellow, Clark Center for Australian & New Zealand Studies (University of Texas at Austin)

"I am very excited to have been offered this wonderful opportunity by the ANU Australia Studies Institute to work this project. I think the global conversation on citizenship in the 1940s had a tremendous, although previously understated, impact on the development of Australia’s national identity and how we think about ourselves today. The project might fundamentally change how we think about the history of citizenship status, which could in turn, radically change the legal and constitutional narratives about what it means to be Australian."

- Dr Anne Macduff, AuSI International Visiting Fellow, Menzies Australia Institute (King's College London)

"I will be joining the Centre for Australian Studies at the University of Cologne from November to December 2023. This fellowship will assist me in the development of my research project, focused on Turkish-language creative writing produced in Australia while providing the unique opportunity to undertake the key work of comparing the production of diasporic Turkish writing in Germany and Australia. I am very excited to meet the vibrant research community at the university as well as the writers from Germany’s Turkish-speaking communities."

- Dr Burcu Cevik-Compiegne, Centre for Australian Studies (University of Cologne)
