The ANU Humanities Research Centre (HRC) recently announed the two recipients of the 2024 HRC Fellowships. Dr Carly Schuster from the School of Archaeology and Anthropology is one of them, receiving the 2024 RSHA-HRC Internal Fellowship.

The two recipients will be awarded one semester of teaching relief and a residential period in the research-rich environment of the ANU Humanities Research Centre.

This year’s round was highly competitive, and we would like to extend our congratulations Dr Carly Schuster for this recognition.

Dr Carly Schuster is Associate Professor of economic anthropology in the School of Archaeology and Anthropology (RSHA). Her research tracks the ways global financial systems like subprime debt and disaster insurance become entangled with the everyday economic and social concerns of marginalised communities in the Global South, especially in Latin America. In addition to publishing widely in anthropology outlets and contributing to public debates about financialisation, Carly collaborates with illustrators in Paraguay to produce graphic ethnographies (i.e. anthropological comics).

While in residence at the HRC, Carly will be writing her next ethnography, Parametric Planet: transforming values at the dawn of climate insurance. The book charts the rise of weather derivatives and uncovers the cultural logics of their speculative investments in environmental future-making.
