Three full-time, funded, scholarships available for PhD candidates to undertake research into Utilitarian Filmmaking in Australia 1945 – 1980, as part of a four-year Australian Research Council funded Discovery Project. This ground-breaking project will discover, document, analyse and compile a lasting archive of Utilitarian Filmmaking in Australia. ‘Utilitarian’ describes client-sponsored, instructional and governmental filmmaking existing outside the conventional theatrical contexts by which cinema is usually defined. The project will engage with major cultural institutions to generate conferences, books, articles, exhibitions and interactive archives as well as the three PhD dissertations. The successful applicants will become part of a leading research team across three Australian universities (University of Canberra, Murdoch University, Monash University,) and have the opportunity to work with experienced senior supervisors in traditional research modes as well as cutting edge, practice-led research outputs.
Expressions of interest are sought from outstanding candidates for PhD study in a wide range of fields including, but not limited to: screen studies, archival studies, cultural studies, communication studies, Australian history.
