Dr James Muldoon, PhD graduate from the Philosophy Graduate Research Program has been awarded the 2016 Mollie Holman Doctoral Medal for the excellent research presented in his thesis, Hannah Arendt and council democracy.
“My work is driven by a passionate attachment to an idea of political life as involving empowered self-governance rather than management, bureaucracy and control.”
The Mollie Holman Medal was established in 1998 and is named after the late pioneering physiologist Emeritus Professor Mollie Homan AO, in honour of her significant contributions to science and education. These medals are among the highest academic honours we bestow, and mark the recipients as researchers of the higher order.
Each year, a maximum of ten medals are awarded to doctoral students, who have fulfilled their degree requirements and presented their faculty’s best thesis of the year. Read more …
