We are delighted to announce the recipients of this year’s Humanities Travelling Fellowships (including the David Philips Travelling Fellowship), Publication Subsidy Scheme and Ernst and Rosemarie Keller Award.
The grants support humanities scholars and researchers to collaborate with international colleagues, conduct research across a broad range of disciplines, and assist with the costs associated with publication of research. President of the Academy, Professor John Fitzgerald FAHA, warmly congratulated this year’s recipients. “Our grants and awards are a crucial part of the Academy’s ongoing commitment to promote excellence in scholarship and research”, he said, “and to assist the next generation of Australian humanities academics to establish their careers.”
The Academy’s Awards Committee was impressed by the high number of outstanding applications, noting that they were presented with “an exceptional range of projects of the highest quality, covering a wide diversity of disciplines, approaches and fields.”
We congratulate the following recipients and are proud to support their projects:
