The Research School of Humanities has been established by the Australian National University in 2007 by amalgamating four key Centres of the University – the renowned Humanities Research Centre, the Centre for Cross Cultural Research, the National Europe Centre and the Australian National Dictionary Centre.
The RSH builds on research fostered by these Centres and seeks to promote innovative research in the Humanities. Its Visiting Fellowship program is an enhancement of the program offered by the HRC since the 1970s and provides funds to support scholars to work in the Research School. Applications are particularly welcome from scholars with interests in one or more of the RSH’s research programs and especially from those whose current projects relate to the RSH 2010 Annual Theme of ‘Imaging Identity’. Applications for fellowships to the Freilich Foundation and the National Europe Centre are also welcomed.
The key research programs of the RSH include:
- Visual Culture
- History and Memory
- Biography and Life Writing
- Culture, Heritage and the Environment
- Public Cultures and Museums
- World Literature
- Postcolonial Studies
- Digital Humanities
