ARC PhD: Progressive Education and Race
The Melbourne Graduate School of Education seeks expressions of interest from eligible graduates for a PhD position on the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery project, 'Progressive Education and Race: a Transnational History of Indigenous Education in Australia and Oceania 1920s-1950s'. There remain few historical studies of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education in Australia. The successful PhD candidate will develop a research project aligned with the project’s investigation of the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education in Australia. The student will be supported to narrow this broad field of inquiry, potentially by regions with an emphasis on a specific Australian state or region. The PhD will suit a candidate with an interest in history, Indigenous studies, and the broader humanities or social sciences and an interest in archival research methods. We especially encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students interested in the history of education to apply. Indigenous peoples from across Oceania are similarly encouraged to apply.
