Event Funding Scheme: Funds Awarded
The ASAA extends its warm congratulations to Ms Vannessa Hearman and Dr Marshall Clark for their successful applications for funding under the Event Funding Scheme, for events they plan to hold in 2013.
Vannessa, a PhD Candidate in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at the University of Melbourne, is organising a workshop called New Perspectives on the 1965-1966 Massacres in Indonesia. Vannessa is collaborating with colleagues at the Australian National University, Mr Mathias Hammer and Professor Robert Cribb.
Marshall, a Senior Lecturer in the Institute for Professional Practice in Heritage and the Arts at the Australian National University, is coordinating a symposium called Labour Migration in the Asia-Pacific: History and Heritage. Marshall is collaborating with his ANU colleague, Dr Phillip Winn.
Both applicants are commended for their innovative proposals, which demonstrate their commitment to supporting Early Career Researchers in Australia and internationally, and their willingness to engage and inform contemporary debates.
The ASAA Event Funding Scheme is open to ASAA members who wish to organise a workshop, symposium or conference that will be of interest to other ASAA members and the broader scholarly community. One round of funding is disbursed every two years for events held in the following year, so that funded events are held in alternate years to the ASAA Biennial Conference. Applications will open for the next funding round in the lead-up to the ASAA Biennial Conference in 2014, for events planned for 2015.
