Congratulations to Dr Kate Warren, Lecturer in the Centre for Art History & Art Theory, on receiving a 2021 Humanities Travelling Fellowship from the Australian Academy of the Humanities.
The Humanities Travelling Fellowships (HTF) enable early career researchers to undertake research domestically and overseas, including accessing archives and other research materials and connecting with international researchers and networks.
Recognising the ongoing restrictions to international travel and the continuing impact of COVID 19 on researchers, this year’s round of the HTFs featured an expanded list of eligible expenses including domestic travel, domestic and international research assistance, ordering and scanning archival and/or source material and carer’s duties; including expenses for child care to enable parents to conduct research.
The successful applicants will undertake a range of projects that address issues of national significance including a study of the impact of the digital divide on regional Australia, a collaborative and interdisciplinary research project on the intersection of philosophy and bioengineering, and a study of the use and abuse of pandemic narratives in the era of COVID-19.
We congratulate all the HTF and David Philips Travelling Fellowship recipients. Read the full recipient list here.
