An opportunity is available at the University of Melbourne for a research student in anthropology to participate in a multidisciplinary ARC linkage project 'examing the use of museums to counter racism and increase acceptance of diversity among young people'.
This project aims to:
A top-up scholarship of $8000 p.a. is available for a PhD student who can secure a primary scholarship (e.g. Australian Postgraduate Award) for full time study at The University of Melbourne. To receive a primary scholarship candidates should have a good honours or masters degree in anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, or other relevant discipline. The PhD research project would involve ethnographic research at Museum Victoria and/or at selected schools in the greater Melbourne area. The precise scope and research questions would be developed by the student, but are likely to focus on attitudes towards racism, diversity and identity within the chosen fieldsite/s and to critically evaluate various attempts to influence such attitudes.
