The National Centre for Australian Studies (NCAS) is delighted to announce the launch of a Fellowship program which enables three senior Chinese scholars of Australian Studies to undertake a three week research visit to Australia in October this year. Three applicants will be selected to undertake research and participate in public outreach events, including a public symposium at the Australian Museum of Chinese-Australian History. The successful applicants will also have access to the newly established China-Australia Research Network (CARN) which seeks to develop a scholarly community that will continue to bring leading academics of Australian Studies from China to Australia to develop collaborative research partnerships and participate in debate designed to strengthen Asian/Australian literacy.
The establishment of CARN and the Fellowship program is funded by the Australia-China Council (part of the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade), with the support of the Australian Museum of Chinese-Australian History. The chief goal of the China-Australia Research Network is to increase understanding both of Australia in China and of Asia literacy among Australians.
To apply, please visit the China-Australia Research Network website application page. Applications will close on 14 July.
