The Humanities Research Centre is delighted to announce the recipients of the 2022 HRC-RSHA and HRC-RSSS Internal Fellowships.
Three fellows have been awarded one semester of teaching relief and a residential period in the research-rich environment of the ANU Humanities Research Centre. They represent the diverse disciplinary fields of Archaeology, Digital Design and Culture, and Turkish Studies, and will each complete research projects focused on both traditional and non-traditional research outcomes.
We are also delighted to be able to share their research findings and projects through their Work in Progress Seminars in semester 2. Dates will be announced shortly here.
This year’s round was highly competitive, and we recognise the research excellence across CASS at all levels.
