Winter Institute 2023 Delegates Announced

Tuesday 12 September 2023

The ANU Australian Studies Institute (AuSI) is pleased to announce the successful delegates for the 2023 Winter Institute: The Universal in Crisis, held at The New Institute in Hamburg, Germany, later this year.

The Winter Institute is an annual collaboration between ANU, New York University, the University of Tokyo and the University of Bonn. The Institute involves a 3-day seminar program on an interdisciplinary theme. This year's theme "The Universal in Crisis" presupposes that there is an existential threat to universalist values and leaves open a role for scholars to play in interrogating this proposition.

AuSI has awarded six delegate positions to ANU academic staff to attend the 2023 program in Hamburg, Germany. The successful applicants come from a number of different areas of the University, including the Fenner School of Environment and Society, Research School of Chemistry, School of Medicine and Psychology, School of Law, School of Sociology, and the Centre for Environmental History.

PhD Candidates:

  • Brianna Gordon (CoS)
  • Edan Habel (CoS)
  • Dr Elisabeth McLinton (CHM)

Early Career Researchers
