One full-time 3-year funded scholarship is available for a PhD candidate to undertake research into Utilitarian Filmmaking in Australia 1945 – 1980, as part of a four-year Australian Research Council funded Discovery Project at Monash University. 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 a total of three PhD dissertations. The successful Monash applicants will become part of a leading research team across three Australian universities (Monash University, University of Canberra, Murdoch 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.
Note: applicants who already hold a PhD will not be considered.
Applicants will be considered provided that they fulfil the criteria for PhD/MA admission at Monash University and demonstrate excellent research capability. Details of the relevant requirements are available at artsonline.monash.edu.au/research-graduate-school/course-details-and-entry-requirements/
