HRC Liaison Officer Awarded HRC DECRA
Congratulations to our wonderful Liaison Officer, Dr Greta Hawes, on receiving a prestigious Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA). Greta, who is a lecturer in Classics in the School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics, will use the award to produce a monograph which aims to enhance contemporary understanding of the experience of Greek myth and contribute to debates over the interplay between the local and the universal (panhellenic) in antiquity.
During her time at the HRC so far, Greta has contributed greatly to the social and intellectual life of the Centre. She is the founder of the HRC's newest regular series, Ad Hominem, a series of quirky, research-led public conversations with diverse ANU academics, aiming to explore "the quirky work/life mash up that is modern academia."
