Congratulations to Dr Kate Warren, Lecturer at the ANU Centre for Art History & Art Theory, awarded a 2022 National Library of Australia Fellowship.
Drawing on the Library’s extensive collections to inform their projects, the 2022 Fellows will use the National Library’s unique collections to conduct research into subjects including Australian theatre, Indigenous studies, popular magazines, social history and various international themes.
Dr Warren’s project investigates how the visual arts and art history have been covered by the mainstream Australian press in the twentieth century. Her research at the National Library of Australia will focus on the role and history of arts writing in Australian popular magazines. She will make use of the Library's comprehensive collection of Australian magazines, especially titles and issues that have not been digitised, as well as conducting archival research in the Library’s holdings of papers of significant Australian art historians, critics and gallery directors.
Funded through generous philanthropic support, the Library’s Fellowship program has supported more than 200 emerging and established Australian and international scholars since 1986, encouraging new and innovative research across a range of scholarly and creative disciplines.
The 2022 Fellows will undertake a 12-week residency in Canberra, where they will have supported access to the extensive national collections, full office facilities including a designated workstation, and, for funded Fellowships, an honorarium, travel and accommodation support.
At the end of their residency, Fellows will present their findings in free public lectures.
